Registration Requirements for International Students

All international students on student visas/study permits are required by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to be students in good standing, which is defined by the University of Regina as being registered in every semester, and no failing grades.

International Master’s students must be registered full-time in the Fall and Winter semesters, and minimally part-time in the Spring/Summer semester.

International Doctoral students must be registered full-time in every semester.

International students are not eligible for part-time study in the Fall or Winter semesters, and may not be eligible for Master's Certificates.

Full-time registration for international students is defined as:

  • registered in six credit hours or more in the Fall semester, and Winter semester
  • registered in six credit hours or more in the Fall semester, Winter semester, and Spring/Summer semester (for Doctoral students)
  • registered in courses designated as full-time registration (co-op program, single work placement, internship, post-program full-time maintenance, full-time extension)

Registration in three credit hours does not meet the definition of full-time registration unless those credit hours pertain to the last requirements of the program.
