Review your Application Summary to ensure that information such as your name, your mailing address, your admission term, and the college/program to which you want to be considered for admission are correct. If any of the information in your Application Summary is incorrect, contact us and we would be happy to help.

Application Status

Incomplete - Items Outstanding - This status can mean that the Admissions Office has not yet received items that are required to consider you for admission. Refer to the Requirements section of your Application Summary to see a checklist of items. If you have submitted something recently, it may take 1-2 business days to appear as received and it may be several weeks before an Admissions Officer is able to review your application and make a decision.

Complete and Ready for Review - All final, official documents have been received and your application is awaiting evaluation by an Admissions Officer. Only high school graduates or post-secondary students who have submitted official post-secondary transcripts will see this status.

Decision Made - A decision has been made regarding your application. If a decision has been made regarding the application for admission that is being considered, we will be contacting you very shortly! Keep an eye on your mail box/inbox. Please note that if you mistakenly submitted more than one application, the duplicate application will show this status and will not be considered further. The Admissions Office is not able to delete or remove duplicate applications.

Requirements

After your application has been submitted online, a list of items required to further process your application will be listed here. You will see the date that items are received and a description of any items that still need to be submitted. Upon submission of your application, it may take several days for this list to be updated by the Admissions Office. We appreciate your patience!

These are common items that may appear in your checklist:

Application Fee - A non-refundable $90 CDN application fee is required before your application will be considered.

Preliminary Statement of Marks - A document showing marks for any classes you have completed and listing any classes in which you are currently enrolled may be used to consider you for early (conditional) admission. If you send more than one, subsequent submissions will be listed as "Additional Prelim. Statement".

Proof of English Proficiency - Please visit our English Language Proficiency Requirement page to learn how this can be fulfilled.

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 (e.g. 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.

Post-Secondary Transcript - If you have completed classes at another post-secondary institution, you must arrange for final, official transcripts to be sent directly to the University of Saskatchewan by the issuing authorities, usually the Registrar's Office of your post-secondary institution. Final, official transcripts will be required before transfer credit will be assessed.

Applicants currently enrolled in classes may be considered for early (conditional) admission prior to the Admissions Office receiving this document, but applicants must arrange for the submission of a final, official transcript upon completion of current classes to move from conditional to full admission.

Course Descriptions/Outlines - Detailed course outlines for classes that we have not previously evaluated for transfer credit are required.

Copy Govt Issued Passport Reqd - International students must submit a scanned copy or legible photocopy of a government-issued passport.

Proof of Permanent Residence - Permanent residents and Canadian immigrants must submit a scanned copy or legible photocopy of both sides of their Permanent Resident Card or proof of Canadian citizenship.

Proof of Age - Applicants over the age of 21 who do not meet our regular admission requirements may be re-considered for admission under the Special (Mature) Admission provision and must submit proof of age, such as a copy of a driver's license or birth certificate.

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 (e.g. transcripts, list of classes, proof of English language proficiency, etc.).

If you are offered conditional admission based on an unofficial transcript or preliminary statement of marks, remember that a final, official transcript must be sent directly to us by the appropriate authority once you have finished your current program of study or have finished classes at another post-secondary institution.

Saskatchewan high school students must request official transcripts to be sent directly to the University of Saskatchewan by the Ministry of Education.

  1. as soon as possible
  2. after January exams
  3. after June exams

In addition, if you are registered in any non-semestered courses, you should declare these on the application for admission and should email us a copy of your report card or a letter from your principal showing your January mid-term marks for non-semestered courses as soon as possible.
