Common visiting students
Saskatchewan students enrolled at the University of Regina, and/or Saskatchewan Polytechnic
For the 2023 Spring or Summer Terms, students currently enrolled at the University of Regina and/or Saskatchewan Polytechnic can apply to the University of Saskatchewan as a Common Visiting Student through a partnership between these institutions.
As a Common Visiting Student, you can take distance and off-campus classes offered by partnered institutions in Saskatchewan with the intent of transferring credit back to your home institution.
To apply as a Common Visiting Student, please fill out and submit the application form below, along with a letter of permission from your home institution. Talk to your advisor at your home institution for more information.
If you wish to take university classes solely for interest's sake, auditing classes may be an option for you.
If you audit a class, you attend lectures but do not hand in assignments, participate in class discussions, or write mid-term or final exams. You will not receive credit for the classes you take, but you will pay lower fees and are exempt from many admission requirements.
To apply to become an audit student, create or log into your USask admissions account and start an application.
When asked to choose an application, select Take undergraduate classes as a visiting or audit student to access the correct application type. Fill out the entire application form and submit it before the application deadline.
If you have previously completed classes at the University of Saskatchewan, you can apply as a returning student. Returning students are not required to pay an application fee when applying for readmission to one of USask six undergraduate direct-entry colleges: Agriculture and Bioresources, Arts and Science, Education, Edwards School of Business, Engineering, or Kinesiology.
To apply, create or log in to your USask admissions account and start an application. When asked to choose an application, select Undergraduate program: bachelor's degree, diploma or certificate. When asked to indicate if you are a current or returning USask student, choose Yes to access the correct application form.
Deadlines for returning students
If you are applying for readmission to the same college you attended previously and you have not completed any other post-secondary education since leaving the University of Saskatchewan, your application will be considered if submitted by the deadlines listed above.
If you are applying to a different college than the one you attended previously or if you have completed classes at another post-secondary institution since leaving the University of Saskatchewan, you must apply for admission by the same application deadlines as new or transfer students.
The deadline to apply as a returning student to the College of Education* is May 1 prior to enrolling in classes in the upcoming Fall or Winter Terms.
*Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) program routes only.
