The Enrolment Services unit works with the campus community to proactively attract and enrol a student body whose size, quality and diversity reflect the University’s enrolment goals.
Admissions facilitates the admission of Canadian and international students to direct entry programs by interpreting and setting admission and recognition of prior learning policy and procedures; evaluating the credentials of applications and rendering admissions decisions; and evaluating and assessing transfer credit. The unit also works with non direct entry programs to provide admission and international credentialing advice.
Undergraduate Recruitment promotes the recruitment of Canadian and international students to direct entry programs in a variety of ways: through outreach activities in high schools, regional colleges and transfer colleges; tours and on-campus events such as Experience US! and U-Start; targeted relationship marketing initiatives such as the Greystone Scholars Society; admissions counselling; communication strategies; memberships with Canadian Education Centres; and through programs for parents and guidance counsellors. These activities inform prospective students about the diverse, high-quality educational opportunities available at the U of S, and raise awareness of the University nationally and internationally—motivating students to choose the University of Saskatchewan for their post-secondary education.
Student Orientation coordinates an informative program designed for students new to the University of Saskatchewan. This comprehensive event includes university-wide and college-specific information, and offers an enthusiastic welcome and introduction to campus life. Specific programming is available to Aboriginal and international students, and students with disabilities. Orientation events take place in both September and January.
