High School Transcript - This refers to your final, official high school transcript which must be sent to us directly by the appropriate issuing authority in your region after the completion of your secondary education (i.e. final, official high school transcript). Applicants currently enrolled in high school can be considered for early (conditional) admission without this document but must arrange for one to be submitted following graduation.

Final, official transcripts will be required before transfer credit will be assessed.

Request for Special Admission - If you are identified as a candidate for Special (Mature) Admission, someone who is over the age of 21 who does not meet our regular admission requirements, you will be contacted and asked to provide additional information in the form of a letter requesting consideration under this provision, as well as a resume.

After your application for admission and application fee have been received by the Admissions Office, your application will be reviewed.

We will contact you to let you know which documents we need to consider you for admission (i.e. transcripts, list of classes, proof of English language proficiency, etc.)

Remember: The early admission deadline for applicants with a 90%+ admission average to the Edwards School of Business, College of Engineering or College of Kinesiology is December 1. The application for admission, application fee, and documents to support your application must be received by this date for early consideration.

Documents sent via courier should be marked as "educational documents" and should indicate an estimated value of $0. The University of Saskatchewan will not accept packages if customs charges are incurred. All charges for sending documents by postal mail or courier are the responsibility of the sender.

In many cases, such as to verify the completion of prerequisite subjects, we will also need you to arrange for an official high school transcript to be sent to us by the appropriate issuing authority.
