Registration for Graduate Courses 

All graduate students will be required to register every term (there are 3 terms per Calendar year: Term 1 is September to December, Term 2 is January to April and Term 3 is May to August) from the time commencing the graduate program until all degree requirements are completed. If a student does not wish to take a course during any of the three terms, they must still register as Maintenance of Registration (MSTA). Contact the Academic Advisor at to find out how you can be registered in MSTA.

NURS 990

Nursing 990 is the departmental graduate seminar and is a College of Graduate Studies and Research requirement. Attendance is required for two academic terms (if successful - CR will be entered twice).

While you are strongly encouraged to attend all the 990 Graduate seminars, the minimum attendance requirement is 75 % of the term's offering. For example - if 13 seminars were offered per term, the minimum attendance would be 9.

Attendance will be taken and credit given only if the minimum amount has been met. If you are not able to attend the 75% minimum, you will be required to register in the next fall and/or winter term until two fully credited terms have been completed.

Transfer Credits

Students may take courses from other institutions. A total of six credits can be transfered to the University of Saskatchewan for inclusion in the  Master degree. Before registering to take courses from another institution a request to take these courses either through the Saskatchewan University Graduate Agreement (for University of Regina classes only) or the Western Canadian Deans Agreement (all other universities in western Canada) is needed.

If a student wishes to transfer previously completed coursework into the nursing program, please be advised that your program is deemed to have begun at the time you took the course. For example, if a student took graduate statistics in 2011, and wanted to transfer that course into the program which began in 2012, the five year time limit to complete the Master Nursing degree would begin in 2011, not 2012.

Letters of Enrollment

Letters confirming your enrollments are available from your PAWS account.  These letters will only show you as a registered student for the terms you have registered. Confirmation of enrollment for non-government student loan providers, non-U of S institutions offering financial support, financial institutions, provincial health care providers and employers can be found here.
