    Hi Paula,

    You will get access to SLATE closer to the start of the semester and will only be able to see your course on the first day of the class.

    Take care,

  • Paula Bromby says:

    I am not sure it is because I am early to be logging into slate or because I have not gone through course selection since I will be attending come September 2020, or if their is an actual problem with my authorization logging into slate. Every time I try to get started and login it says
    “There was a problem processing your authentication.
    Your username/password was invalid or your particular user does not exist on our system.

    If you have any questions please see your system administrator.”
    I am not sure what is occurring and I want to make sure that before school starts remotely online in September that I am able to access Slate.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the note. Please reach out to me personally. Can you send me some screenshot of the issues you are facing when you try to login? I would recommend using Chrome and make sure you have the latest update. Reach out to me and we can troubleshoot from there. Thank you! – Jennifer

    Thank you for the note, SLATE was down last night for an hour but it is back up and running today. Make sure to shut down your browser and try again. If you are still running into issues email me directly.
    Thank you!

  • Gabby Manserra says:

    for some reason I can’t get into my slate, I’ve been trying multiple times and im typing in my information right

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the note, Aretha. No, you will not be able to access your class until the first scheduled date of your course.

    Even if the start date has not passed, you should not be getting errors. Make sure you are using Chrome or Firefox as your browser. You might get an error if you are using other non-supported or updated browsers.

    If you are still running into issues after you try another browser and the start date has passed, please send me an email with all your details and I will look into it.

    Thank you!

  • Aretha Vees says:

    Hi Ms. Frost, your reply is unclear. The question is – can I access Slate before the start date. Once in Slate it is clear that the student must wait for the course to begin before accessing the course material. I too get an error message saying =Sheridan Login Service – Error
    An error occurred: NoSuchFlowExecutionException. I just want to access Slate to see if my course is there.
    Please advise.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    If you change your password, sometimes it will take 24 hours for it to sync to all the systems. If you are still running into issues, please let us know.
    Thank you!

    My WiFi is connected with Sheridan College through my login information, and I am also able to login into “Access Sheridan” but I don’t know why the same username and password is not working for logging into slate..

    Thank you for the comment, Kathryn. If your username and password are not working for SLATE, please contact the service desk at 905-845-9430 ext 2150. They can help reset the password for you and help you identify your username. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    When I try to login to SLATE it tells me that my username cannot be identified

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the message. You will not see your class in SLATE until the start date. If your class starts today, you should be able to access it now. If you still do not have access, please let me know.

    Have a great day!

  • Jennifer Erbiceanu says:

    Can I log into SLATE before the start date of my course? I tried today, which is the day before the course, but was not able to.

  • Brian says:


  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the message. To change your password, you will need to do it through Access Sheridan. Once you login, go to the very bottom and you will see a change password link at the very bottom. Your login for Access Sheridan and SLATE are always the same.

    If you have any further issues with your password, please call the help desk at 905-459-7533 ext 2150.

    Have a great day!
