Below, you will find answers to our most frequently asked questions. If you require further information, please contact an advisor.
What do tuition and student fees cover?
Tuition covers the required program courses and textbooks. For students in Regina and Saskatoon, your fees cover access to city transit (UPASS).
What do I need for school supplies?
We recommended that you have a backpack, binder, pens/pencils and loose leaf.
What is the attendance policy?
Most programs have a 90% attendance policy and your instructor will inform you of the attendance policy at your first class. Attendance is often tied to your funding, and you are encouraged to strive for 100% attendance.
What is a conditional acceptance?
Conditional acceptance is granted when you are required to complete an admissions requirement before full acceptance is granted. This may include completing high school requirements or courses from the previous year.
How do I get a copy of my high school transcripts?
High school transcripts can be ordered from the Government of Saskatchewan website. There is a fee. If you do not have a credit card, preloaded credit cards can be used to pay this fee.
