When an application is required, admission to Saskatchewan Polytechnic constitutes admission to a specific program, managed by a specific campus, based on specific admission criteria. Applicants may apply to more than one program by submitting an application, fee and required documentation for each program.

If you are interested in our competitive programs and have international credentials, to determine your next steps in strengthening your application, please apply and select “Pre-application assessment” for the program of your choice. Our competitive programs are only available to apply to during the application window from October 1 to February 15. This pre-application assessment is only available outside the application window and is only available to students with international credentials. We will complete a pre-application assessment and provide results in mySaskPolytech through your myElectronicLetters.

Each program has specific admission requirements. Details on our Admission Requirements will guide you through providing transcripts, class schedules or additional documentation such as a keyboarding tests, permanent residency card, or translation of your documents.
