Awards information

uSask offers scholarships, bursaries and awards to students from a variety of backgrounds and situations based on academic achievement, community involvement and/or financial need.

Programs to aid in transition to university

Both students who need additional support when starting university and those who are looking to engage more fully in the university experience would benefit from these options for new university students.

Dual credit classes and early start

Through these online courses, offered through a partnership between uSask and the SunWest School Division, high school students can earn credit for both a high school and university course.

Grade 11 or 12 students who are interested in Computer Science and are looking to get an early start on their academic career can enroll in this three-week summer program and earn credit toward a uSask degree.

Post-secondary advising resources

Helping students to choose the right high school subjects needed for their future post-secondary study is important. These resources can help you and your students learn about university degree requirements over and above any requirements for admission.

Advising Guide

The Advising Guide is available as a series of documents you can print on demand and which may be added to or updated. By signing up to receive email updates, you will be notified when new or updated documents become available.

Career planning

From thinking about career goals to searching for jobs and writing an effective resume, the Student Employment and Career Centre at uSask offers many resources to help students plan for the future. 

Newly admitted and current students, as well as alumni, can access some additional, more personalized resources to help with career planning.


Under provincial legislation (The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act) and the University’s data use policy, the University is bound to protect the right of all students to their privacy and to ensure the confidentiality of their student records. Information collected by the University is to be used only for the purposes for which it has been collected, and must not be released to others without the express written consent of the student. Information such as whether or not a student is registered, grades, student number, date of birth, membership in a designated equity group, address and telephone number, etc., are all considered to be private. 

These matters will not be discussed with or confirmed or released to others, including members of the student’s family, unless the student has given the University prior permission in writing to release the information.
