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 information on the 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 when you graduate from high school.

Make sure to double check your high school final admission requirements!

Step 3: 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! Explore our on-campus housing options!

Step 4: Keep Your Family in the Loop
Keep your family informed throughout the admission process with our Parent and Supporter Newsletter. We will keep them up to date on events and deadlines as you prepare for your first term (but we won't share any of your personal information)!

Step 5: Access Scholarships, Awards, and Student Loans

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 from the U of R. You can also apply for external awards and funding, and Government Student Financial Aid from your home province.

Find out more about funding your education.

Step 6: Log in to Your Student Account

After accepting your offer, you will have access to your UR Self Service account. (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 located near the bottom of the URegina home page in the Current Students box.
  • Enter your User ID (9-digit student number in your acceptance letter)
  • Enter your temporary PIN (Date of birth by DDMMYY)

Find more information about your U of R student account.

Step 7: Register For Courses

Is it time to register? Check your time-ticket in UR Self-Service for your exact date! Here's how to do this:

  • Login to UR Self-Service
  • Select the Student tab at the top of the screen
  • Click on Registration
  • Click on Check Your Registration Status
  • Select the term you are starting classes and click on submit
  • You will now see the date you can register for courses!

All students are encouraged to speak to an academic advisor before registering for courses. Your advisor will help you understand program requirements, view available courses, and build your class schedule.

Note: Student enrolled through First Nations University of Canada are required to meet with an academic advisor before they will be able to register for classes. Contact the FNUniv Advisors here.

For additional tips and instructions for registering for classes, check out our Quick Guide to Course Registration.

Step 8: Access Your Student Webmail

All students have their own U of R Webmail address! You can access this email account the day after you have registered for courses for the first time. Your Webmail 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 at all times when contacting professors or faculties services.

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

Find more information about your U of R Student Account.

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 mailed 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!

Orientation is open to all new students. All participants will take part in many of the activities together, and also participate in specialized activities based on student type and interests.

Check out upcoming Orientation activities.

Step 11: Get Your Student 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.
