Attend a Laptop Readiness Session and Ensure your Laptop is Ready for your First Class

Using an Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro for Windows-Based Programs

If you're hoping to use a MacBook or MacBook Pro for your Windows based program you must be running Boot Camp and a supported Windows operating system. Visit the Boot Camp info page to see requirements and support options.

[November 27, 2018] All students – even the most technology savvy – are strongly encouraged to attend a Laptop Readiness Session following new student and international student orientation events. These are important sessions where you will log into Sheridan's network with your laptop and access software required for your courses.

Get the Support You Need and Avoid Start-of-Term Line-ups and Service Delays

Although accessing our network and downloading software is usually straightforward, personal firewall settings and anti-virus software that might be installed on your computer can sometimes present challenges. Attending one of these sessions will ensure that you get the support you need so your laptop is ready for use on Sheridan's network right out of the gate.

Set Up All Your Mobile Devices

If you have a smart phone, tablet or other wifi-enabled device, bring it with you. We can help you configure it for use on Sheridan's network as well.

Session Options

Attend a Session that Coincides with Your Orientation Date

Some sessions are conveniently scheduled to coincide with new student Orientation dates. Attend one of these scheduled sessions and you will have the flexibility to come in anytime during the scheduled time frame. Once you've completed your laptop set up, you can leave.

Reminders

All Students

Please bring at least one form of photo ID (such as your Sheridan onecard or government issued ID such as Passport, Canadian Driver's License or Permanent Resident Card) along with your offer letter.

International Students

We are also offering Laptop Readiness Sessions tailored specifically for International students at each campus. See schedule details below.
