Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for this program will be assessed and advised individually and may be considered for other, related programs.
English Language ProficiencyAll applicants whose first language is not English must meet Sheridan’s English proficiency requirements.
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 acceptable 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 view the immunization information on Sheridan's website.
Sheridan has been granted a consent by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer this degree for a seven-year term starting June 12, 2015 and subject to renewal thereafter. Application to the Ministry for renewal of the consent is a prescribed and cyclical requirement for degree programs at all Ontario Colleges. Sheridan will ensure that all students admitted to the Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences (Kinesiology and Health Promotion) 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).
