Students that have not been actively registered in courses for more than three semesters must apply for re-admission.

If you are already admitted to another Faculty or Program and wish to also take a Certificate Program, you are advised to complete the Application for Undergraduate Concurrent Program Form and take it to your faculty advisor. Doing so ensures that your faculty advisor knows that you are working toward another program and allows them to provide the appropriate services.

Students must meet University of Regina English Language Proficiency requirements prior to admission.

The University of Regina reserves the right to refuse admission even when the stated requirements for entrance have been satisfied. The decision of individual faculties on the granting of admission, re-admission, transfer, and transfer credit is final.

Students with previous U of R courses should be aware that the Centre for Continuing Education's Stale Dated Courses policy states that

students who are admitted or re-admitted to certificate programs in the Centre for Continuing Education, having completed courses in their program more than 10 years ago, may be required to update their knowledge by repeating or taking additional courses toward their program. Certificate programs that include courses academically housed in another academic unit are governed by the stale dated courses policies in the relevant faculty.

For more information, please make an appointment with your academic advisor after you are admitted/re-admitted. 

Note: Students enrolled in a part-time program do not maintain full-time student status throughout the program. Therefore part-time programs may be unavailable to international applicants due to Citizenship and Immigration Canada regulations.

  • Students can register in open registration.
  • The maximum registration for any term is 6 credit hours.
