Your options

Enjoy More Flexibility

Starting or in some cases completing your degree closer to home is a great option if you are seeking more scheduling flexibility, you are unable to come to our main campus or you are just looking to ease your transition to university. As a University of Saskatchewan (uSask) student learning from home or in your home community, you can enjoy more flexibility in balancing your studies with work and family life.

How classes are delivered

You have the opportunity to choose from a variety of delivery modes to provide a rich learning experience: 

1. Off-campus sites

uSask partners with regional colleges and educational institutions in Saskatchewan to provide opportunities for you to study and learn close to home. Approximately 1,000 uSask students study off-campus. You can start your uSask program and in some cases, complete your degree without leaving home. 

  • Face-to-face at at an off-campus site Classes are delivered at off-campus sites throughout Saskatchewan. Typically, classes are offered on a weekly basis, although some may run twice a week or biweekly. Your instructor could be someone from your community or someone who travels from site to site.

  • Live-streamed/televised Classes incorporate lectures and live interactive discussions with your instructor and other students at specific times. Locally-based tutors or proctors help facilitate discussions at off-campus sites and telephone access to your instructor is available.

  • Online Classes are delivered online through a web-based class management system to provide interactivity with your instructor and peers. Registration for some online classes are reserved for off-campus students.

2. Online

Classes are delivered online through a web-based class management system to provide interactivity with your instructor and peers. Classes may be supplemented with interactive components such as audio, video, animation and group discussions. 

3. Independent study

Classes are print-based, home study classes that provide more flexibility in choosing when to study. A course guide directs you through your readings and assignments. You will have access to your instructor by phone or email.

Off-campus locations and programs

By studying from home or closer to your home community, you can save significantly on living costs and as a full-time uSask student you can apply for both uSask scholarships as well as awards offered by your regional college. In addition to support services available to all uSask students, individualized program and career counselling, essay writing support, course-focused group discussions and tutoring are all available at uSask’s off-campus sites where classes tend to be smaller and provide more one-on-one interaction with instructors and tutors.
