The University of Regina’s Enrolment Services has unveiled a new website, with the goal of making it easier for future students to find out about the University – and then sign up for classes.

“The new site is designed to make important information easier to access and help future students seamlessly flow through the enrolment process,” explains John Kincaid, the Director of Enrolment Services.

The new site includes drop-down menus for such things as admission requirements, programs, finances and campus life.

“It has a sophisticated administrative CRM (customer relationship management system) attached to it that allows future students to sign in and receive information specific to their area of interest. Other notable features include a streamlined navigation and menu targeted specifically to future students, a great new design that aligns with the rebranded Enrolment Services material and complements the U of R website, quick and easy access to our academic program descriptions and the ability to apply from any page on the website,” says Kincaid.

He also says the new webpage provides lots of ways for future students to connect with the University of Regina – no matter their preferences. “Whether it’s facebook, instagram or YouTube, we're here to help! This is all about student service,” he says.

Enrolment Services can also be contacted by more traditional methods: the telephone number is 306-337-2327 – or you can visit the office in Room 108 of the Administration Humanities Building.
