When you register for Open House, you can choose from many presentations and demonstrations taking place across the university in five timeslots.
Since sessions take place in real USask classrooms and capacity is limited, these can fill quickly. Be sure to register as early as possible to have the best chance to register in sessions you want.
Parents, guardians and other supporters of prospective students
We offer a full day of programming specifically for parents of prospective university students at Open House. As your children consider their options for post-secondary education, you will also be considering how best to support them. During our Open House parent program, you will learn what you'll need to know to help your child make the transition to university—from applying through arriving, and the steps in between.
