About Programs and Courses

What’s the difference between a Program and a Course? 

A Program is a group of courses that together, focus on a field of study. A program achieves a specific outcome, like a Certificate or a Designation. 

A Course is an individual class or subject that you can take on its own, in a series, or as part of program, working towards a certification. 

Types of Learning Environment

Sheridan offers three different types of learning environment - on Campus, online and blended. 

On Campus learning is in-class and requires that you attend the Sheridan Campus to complete your credit. 

Online learning can take place in one of two different online environments - SLATE, or OntarioLearn (see Studying Online for more details). 

Blended learning is a course where instruction is given both in the classroom and through online sessions. Many courses are now offered in this manner.

What grade is a pass?

For most of Sheridan's Continuing and Professional Studies courses, a minimum of 50% or a 'D' is required to obtain the credit. Some courses require higher minimum grades for a pass - please review individual course outlines for additional details.
