Transferring from an Ontario College

Business students who have successfully completed one or two years of their program can easily transfer their credits to another college in the province. A system-wide agreement is in place at Sheridan and other colleges, permitting students to transfer among all college business programs across Ontario. The agreement means that business students in programs such as Business General, Human Resources, Accounting and Marketing will receive full credit for their completed courses. Given the high enrolment of business programs, these pathways provide additional flexibility for a significant number of students. Interested students should apply at using the appropriate program entry level at the new college. For more information, email
