Make a request to Saskatchewan Education to send your official transcript directly to Saskatchewan Polytechnic at the end of semester one (no later than February 28) and the end of semester two (end June). Final official transcripts must be received by August 1.

6. I have taken several post-secondary courses. Will these count?”
An official transcript should be forwarded to Registration Services directly from the issuing educational institution. Sask Polytech is using the higher of the High School average compared to any post-secondary grade point averages (UGPA) (30 credits minimum). Post-secondary course marks cannot be used in high school average calculations, however Sask Polytech can use an equivalent post-secondary grade where a student doesn’t have a specific high school subject needed for the high demand admission.
7. Is preference given to Saskatoon residents for the Saskatoon work placement sites?
No. Work placements are assigned by the program staff. The staff strives to ensure the assignment is done in a clear, non-prejudicial manner.
8. If I do not want the work placement seat I was assigned, can I waive my seat until the next year?
No. Applicants who do not accept the seat they are offered will not earn credit for the work placement and will not be eligible for graduation.
