About Employee Accounts

Available to

  • Sheridan employees


Full-time Employees

If you are hired as a full-time employee, you will automatically be assigned a network account once your Human Resources record is created. Note that an account cannot be created until you have been assigned a Sheridan employee number.

Part-time Employees

If you are part-time faculty or part-time staff, your manager or his/her designate will need to contact the IT Service Desk to request an email account for you (once a Sheridan employee number has been created for you).

Faculty of Continuing & Professional Studies Instructors

FCAPS instructors are sent a letter with their username and initial password. Alternatively, you may be notified by someone in your faculty.
