All Sheridan staff and students are expected to adhere to the College’s academic and conduct policies. By defining the expectations within the Sheridan community, an environment of equity and fairness is created. It is the right and responsibility of each student and staff member to familiarize themselves with these guidelines and regulations. Make it a priority to read through the Sheridan Policies and Procedures so you know what is expected of you, and what you can expect from others.

The following policies are of particular interest to Continuing and Professional Studies students:
An academic appeal is a request against a decision of Sheridan, and not a complaint against a faculty or staff member. If you’re worried that a decision has been made that will negatively impact your academic standing, you can initiate an academic appeal. An academic appeal must be started within 5 business days after receipt of the decision or questionable grade. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the Academic Appeal policy.
Sheridan takes Academic Honesty very seriously. You need to as well! It is considered a breach of academic honesty to claim that the ideas, writing, projects or creations of someone else are your own. It’s also considered breach of honesty if you attempt to alter, suppress, falsify or make up research data or results, or forge an official academic record, application or document, or cheat.
All Sheridan faculty, staff and students are expected to be aware of breaches of academic honesty and are responsible for taking appropriate action if it’s believed that a breach of academic integrity has taken place. Suspected instances of academic honesty will be investigated and disciplined accordingly.
Each member of the Sheridan community has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. The Code of Conduct, in coordination with other related policies, is intended to provide guiding principles and rules for behaviour that, when followed, contribute to a respectful, supportive and safe place to work and learn. In the same manner that citizens of a community are responsible for their actions, so too are employees, students, contractors, consultants, visitors, volunteers, and any other person in our environment. As such, all members of our community are obligated to acknowledge and accept the responsibilities for good citizenship.
Good citizenship is expressed as behaviour which respects the duties, obligations and functions of a citizen as set out in this Code.
Sheridan College is committed to provide a working and learning environment that is free of discrimination and harassment and supportive of academic achievement and the dignity, self-esteem and fair treatment of everyone taking part in its activities. The college seeks to create a climate of mutual respect that reinforces opportunity and allows for each person to contribute fully to the development and well-being of the community.
