About off-campus programs

The University of Saskatchewan (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. 

Benefits of off-campus study


Flexibility

Starting your degree closer to home is a great way to ease your transition to university. As a University of Saskatchewan (uSask) student living in your home community, you can enjoy more flexibility in balancing your studies with work and family life.


Focused support

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.


Personalized Instruction

Classes at off-campus sites tend to be smaller and provide more one-on-one interaction with instructors and tutors. 


Save Money

By studying closer to your home community, you can save significantly on living costs. And, as a full-time uSask student at an off-campus site, you can apply for both uSask scholarships and bursaries, as well as awards offered by your regional college.

How classes are delivered

Students have the opportunity to choose from a variety of delivery modes to provide a rich learning experience. 

  • Off-campus face-to-face 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.
