Sponsorship

If you are taking only Continuing Education courses, your sponsoring agency will need to submit a Continuing Education Sponsorship form online. Enrolment Services will register the sponsored student and email a Confirmation of Enrolment to the student. The sponsoring organization will be invoiced for all registrations received. For Continuing Education sponsorship FAQs, visit How to Sponsor a Student.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is committed to protecting the confidential records of students.  Students are required to complete and sign a Consent to Release (pdf)  form if they wish to permit Sask Polytech to release personal information to sponsoring agencies, or anyone outside of Sask Polytech.  Students are also required to complete and sign this form if they need Sask Polytech to obtain personal information about themselves from a third party.  Completed Consent to Release (pdf) forms are to be sent to Enrolment Services.

Course load and loans

Students may apply online for Canada Student Grants and Loans.

More information about financial assistance can be found on our Financial Assistance web page.

For a definition of these terms please visit our Glossary.

Full-time studies means enrolling in a course load of 60% or greater for the study period. Part-time studies means enrolling in a course load of 20% or greater for the study period.

For students with a verified disability with Accessibility Services, full-time studies is defined as a course load of at least 40% for the study period. Part-time studies is a course load of 20% or greater for the study period.

Use our online course load calculator to estimate your course load.  Enrolment Services provides the final official course load for student loan purposes.

Email your completed program information form (PIF) to Enrolment Services with your name, student number, courses you will be taking and your program. Make sure to select the campus that is offering your courses or the campus nearest you. Enrolment Services will complete, sign and send your form to Student Loans. To ensure your loan is processed in a timely manner, documents should be forwarded to Enrolment Services at the time of your registration or as soon as possible after.  

Students that are applying for Canada Student Loans may pay a $100 deposit per course at the time of registration to hold their seat in the CE course. If funding is denied, the student is responsible to either pay the remaining course fees or withdraw before the deadline.

International

International students may register in Continuing Education credit courses at international tuition rates which can be viewed on any credit course information page. It is strongly recommended that international students discuss course schedule changes with a student advisor to ensure there are no unintended effects to study/work permit status. At this time international students can register in non-credit offerings at the domestic rate. 

Transfer Credit or PLAR

You have to be a registered or admitted student to get transfer credit at any education institution. At Sask Polytech, that includes:

  • students registered in one or more Sask Polytech distance courses without being admitted to a program, 
  • students currently attending a Sask Polytech program,
  • applicants who are admitted to an upcoming Sask Polytech program, and
  • students taking a Sask Polytech program at a Saskatchewan regional college.

Please see eligibility, deadline and process information on the Transfer Credit to Sask Polytech web page.

Please see eligibility, deadline and process information on the Transfer Credit to Sask Polytech web page.
