Financial Assistance

Starting Fall 2020, students enrolled in a continuing education program can apply for a Sheridan Continuing Education Bursary!  This bursary aims to provide financial support to students with low family income and resources.  Eligible students will receive up to $200 per course to a maximum of $500 per term.   
You may be eligible for a Sheridan Bursary for Continuing Education if: 
  •  You are a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or Protected Person as defined in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada); 
  • Your family income is below the threshold for a given family size; 
  •  You are not receiving grant or loan funding from: 
  •  The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP);

  •  A student financial assistance program from another province, territory or country. 
  •  Ontario Bridging Participant Assistant Program (OBPAP) 
  •  You are taking courses that are required for a Sheridan College Certificate, Recognition of Achievement, or Micro-Credential.   
  •  Your study period is at least four weeks in length. 
The deadline to apply for bursary assistance is no later than 10 business days after your class starts.  You are responsible for paying the costs associated to register in classes as the review of bursary applications will not occur until after the drop with refund period has passed. Applications will be considered in the order which they are submitted until funding has been depleted.
