2. Get ready to apply
Do I need an application?
Each program page provides admission information.
Programs offered part-time may not require applications until a specific point in your studies or at the end. With this path you can start your studies through the School of Continuing Education. Programs that do not require an application, will require an application for graduation (pdf) at the end.
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.
