What's Next Checklist

Congratulations on your offer of admission!

Please review the information included on this checklist to make sure your transition to the University of Regina is a seamless one.

Start Here

Step 1: Accept Your Offer

As a newly admitted U of R student, we ask that you accept your offer of admission within 30 days to save your spot in your program (unless you are one of the exceptions below). You must accept your offer prior to registering for courses. There is no tuition deposit required to accept your offer!


Nursing students - please check your acceptance letter issued by Saskatchewan Polytechnic for steps to accept your offer

CCE students - do not need to accept an offer

Re-admission/Internal Transfer - do not need to accept an offer

Step 2: Check Final Admission Requirements

If you are a high school student who has received a conditional acceptance to a program, you must still meet the final admission requirements for your program at the time of graduation.

Make sure to review the high school final requirements.

Step 3: Access Your Student Webmail

All students have their own U of R Webmail address! Your Webmail is available a day after you accept your offer and it is where all official U of R communications are sent while you are a student. Your faculty may also require that you use your official Webmail when contacting professors or faculty services.

As a new student, you will need to find your username and activate your account.

In addition to your webmail, further services will be available through your student account the day after you first register for classes.

Find more information about your U of R student accounts.

Step 4: Apply For Housing

Living on campus is the best way to meet new people and get involved in university life. You can choose your preferred type of accommodation and even request to live with a friend! For more information and to access the online application, visit the Experience U of R page here!

Step 5: Keep Your Supporters in the Loop
Keep your family and supporters informed throughout the admission process with our Parent and Supporter Newsletter. We will keep them up to date on important events and deadlines as you prepare for your first term (but we won't share any of your personal information)!

Step 6: Look Into Scholarships, Awards, and Government Student Financial Aid

Your education is an important investment, and there are financial supports available to help you cover the costs. The U of R offers many awards, scholarships, and bursaries to students. Our expert team even provides guidance and support for students applying for financial aid! You can also apply for external awards and funding, and Government Student Financial Aid (student loans) from your home province.

Find out more about funding your education.

Step 7: Log into Your UR Self Service Account

After accepting your offer, you will be able to access UR Self Service (please note: the activation of your account can take up to 48 hours). This is where you will view your registration Time Ticket, register for your courses, request an official Confirmation of Enrolment, pay your tuition, find your textbook list, and much more.

How to log in to your student account:

  • Click on UR Self-Service under Current Students at the bottom of the home page
  • Enter your User ID (9-digit student number in your acceptance letter)
  • Enter your temporary PIN (Date of birth by DDMMYY)

Step 8: Register For Courses

Step 9: Submit Your Final Transcripts

High School Students

Don't forget! If you are finishing high school this year, we will need your final, official transcript showing your final grades before you start classes. If you are starting classes in September, the deadline to submit your final transcripts is August 1.

Review how to submit final official transcripts based on your province of study.

Post-Secondary Transfer Students

If you are currently completing classes at another post-secondary institution, your final official transcripts must be submitted after the courses are complete. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the post-secondary institution(s) to Enrolment Services by September 30. An English translation is required if the post-secondary transcript is not in English or French.

All documents that are supplied in support of applications for admission, re-admission, or transfer become the property of the University of Regina.

Review document deadlines in our Application Guide.

Step 10: Register for Orientation

New student orientation is the best way to kick-start your first term! Orientation provides workshops, events, and resources to help new students become familiar with our campus, connect with their faculty and peers, prepare for the academic demands of university, and much more!

Check out upcoming Orientation activities

Step 11: Get Your U of R Photo ID Card

Your U of R Photo ID card provides access to campus services like the library and the fitness and lifestyle centre. It is also used as official identification for exams and security purposes. Photo ID cards are set up through the Registrar's Office.

Visit the Registrar's Office website for information on how to obtain your Student ID Card.

Step 12: Login to UR Courses
UR Courses is the online learning environment used by the U of R. In UR Courses you will be able to access your course materials and activities posted by instructors. Access to courses is available at the start of the semester. If the semester has already begun, access to your course will become available approximately 24 hours after enrolment.
