Articulation Agreement

Applicants who do not possess the necessary admission requirements to this program at Sheridan who complete the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program will be granted admission, contingent on space in the program (in the semester that they are applying for), if they have an overall GPA of 3.0 and a minimum of B grades in all their math and science courses.

Where space is not available in the semester for which an applicant has applied and the applicant meets all the requirements of this agreement, admission to a later intake of the program will be granted.

Applicants from the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program must also complete all other pre-admission requirements for their chosen program, such as criminal record checks, immunization documentation, etc. listed in the program admission requirements. All applicants to the Practical Nursing, Veterinary Technician, and Pharmacy Technician programs must also take the HOAE (Health Occupation Aptitude Exam) pre-admission test. Taking the HOAE is a requirement to meet the terms of the articulation; however, admission to the program is not contingent on test results at this time.

Prospective students should ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria for registration, such as English language proficiency in the program for which this transfer process is being applied.

Criminal Record Check and Immunization Requirements

Sheridan field placement agencies may require a police record check for criminal offences, a vulnerable sector check and/or a current record of immunization. Students will be required to provide this documentation directly to their field placement prior to the start of the placement and at their own expense. Students who cannot meet these requirements may have limited field placement opportunities. Please refer to the immunization information on our website, or come in to one of the campus health centres.

Ministry Consent

Sheridan has been granted a consent by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development to offer this applied degree for a further seven-year term starting January 19, 2015. Sheridan will ensure that all students admitted to the Honours Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences (Athletic Therapy) program during the period of consent will have the opportunity to complete the program within a reasonable time frame. Credentials earned during the period of consent remain valid, even if Ministry consent to offer the program is withdrawn in the future. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs (e.g., acceptable to potential employers, professional licensing bodies, or other educational institutions).
