    Expanded Sask Polytech/URegina transfer agreement increases learning pathways for students News Release Release Date: September 25, 2017 10:45 a.m. Today representatives from Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Regina signed a transfer credit agreement that spans seven Sask Polytech programs and two U of R schools, allowing students to transfer between institutions. After completing a certificate or diploma at Sask Polytech, graduates who meet entry requirements will have the opportunity to transfer into an undergraduate degree program. As a result, students would be able to graduate with both a certificate or diploma and a U of R degree after four years of study. “One of Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s strategic goals is to facilitate learning pathways to support lifelong learning,” says Anne Neufeld, provost and vice-president, Academic, Saskatchewan Polytechnic. “This agreement expands and reconfirms decades of co-operation between Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Regina to provide pathways for our health science and recreation graduates.”
