Application FAQ

1. What is the deadline to apply?

You may apply by February 15th for all Master's programs and the PhD program to begin your studies the following Fall term. You can also apply by October 15th for all programs except the Educational Psychology or PhD programs to start in the Winter term. You may apply online at any time, but applications are not reviewed until after the deadlines.


2. How do I know what I should apply for?

Choosing a program of study can be difficult! We suggest that you:

  • Determine your academic and/or professional goals;
  • Connect with faculty with whom you are interested in studying (Faculty Directory);
  • Connect with someone working in the field in which you're interested;
  • Make an appointment with our Academic Advisor. Appointments can be booked online here

4. What are "official" transcripts?

Official transcripts must be mailed in a sealed envelope, and signed or stamped by the issuing institution. A transcript is required from every institution you have attended in the past. However, you do not need to submit transcripts from the University of Regina. Transcripts that are faxed, issued to the student, electronically transmitted, or mailed in an unsealed envelope are not official. More information can be found here.




5. What do I need if I am an International Student?

You may need to submit proof of your profiency in the English language if you are not a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident. Please note that International students may not apply to the Master's certificate programs.


6. What are the academic requirements for programs in the Faculty of Education?

You must have a four-year Bachelor's degree with a graduating average of at least 70%. Applicants with a marginally lower 4-year average may be accepted if their performance in the last two complete years is significantly higher (75% or more), as documented by the official transcript.

Your academic background should be relevant to the Master's program (e.g. Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Social Work or Adult Education). Applicants who do not meet this requirement may be admitted as a probationary student.



7. Do I need to contact Faculty before submitting my application?

While it is not required, we recommend you contact our Faculty members if you are applying to a Thesis route or the PhD program. Your chances of acceptance into a program are higher if you apply with a Faculty member who is willing to supervise you.
