Application Information +

Undergraduate Certificates
If you are currently completing your Grade 12 year you can apply as a high school student. Your application will be assessed for early conditional admission to your program of choice. This allows students who are still in grade 12 to be conditionally admitted using grade 11 and any grade 12 courses they have completed. Students who are granted early conditional admission are still required to meet the final admission requirements for their program/faculty at the time of graduation.

If you have graduated from high school or completed secondary-level standing, and have not attended any post-secondary institutions, you are also considered a high school student. Your application will be assessed based on high school admission requirements listed below.

When applying during the final year of high school, students can provide an interim grade report and a schedule of current/planned courses via email, fax, or mail. This can be sent directly to the Centre for Continuing Education office from the student or guidance counsellor. This interim/unofficial grade report is used for the early conditional admission calculation.

Official high school final transcripts must be submitted following graduation and by all those applying who have completed high school. This official document is used for the final admission average calculation. Find information on how to order your official transcripts. Official transcripts must come to the University of Regina directly from the issuing institution (Ministry of Education, school board office, etc.) in your province or country (if other than Canada).

Accelerated Program
Applicants who are currently enrolled in high school or as home-based learners (minimum age 16) may be admitted to the University to take one course per term (semester). Applicants must meet have a minimum 65% on five academic subjects on a combination of two years of secondary level courses. These courses will be taken from subjects normally used for admission purposes (refer to approved list of high school courses in the admissions section of the General Calendar).

Casual Studies Program
The Casual Studies Program is designed to allow members of the general public to take courses for general interest. The following restrictions apply to this program:

• Applicants must be aged at least 18 (if under 18, they must have already graduated from high school).
• Students who have received a Faculty requirement to discontinue (RTD) or University-level forced withdrawal (MW) at the University of Regina or another post-secondary institution are not eligible to participate.
• Students can register in open registration.
• The maximum registration for any term is 6 credit hours.
• The maximum length of time students are allowed to stay in the Casual Student Program before applying to transfer to a Faculty is 24 credit hours.
• Regular evaluation of academic performance applies to Casual Students. Academic performance is evaluated following each term. If Casual Students already have full or part of a U of R degree and come in with more than 24 credit hours, those credit hours count towards evaluation of academic performance and application of academic policies.

High school and post-secondary transcripts are not required unless a desired course has pre-requisites. These transcripts can be unofficial and are accepted directly from the applicant.

Mature Admission

Mature admission to undergraduate programs may be granted to applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • Canadian Citizen, Refugee, Protected Person, or Permanent Resident of Canada;
  • 21 years of age before the start of the term to which they are applying;
  • have attempted fewer than 15 credit hours of approved post-secondary courses; and
  • can demonstrate the ability to succeed at university through life or work-related experiences.

Students wishing to apply through Mature Admission are required to submit a personal mature statement, high school transcripts, if out of secondary school for fewer than  fiver years and any other faculty specific supplementary information, if applicable.

English Language Proficiency
All Centre for Continuing Education Students are subject to English Language Proficiency requirements.
The language of instruction at the University of Regina is English. All applicants to the University of Regina must therefore demonstrate an appropriate level of proficiency in the English language, unless they are entering the Baccalaureate en education program, in which case they must meet the French language proficiency requirement. Find information on English language proficiency requirements here.
