The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan
Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements,
you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program.
The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you
for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application,
once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
