After You Apply

Next steps for your application

Step One: Check your email

Step Two: Review your application decision in mySAIT.ca

Step Three: Take the next step based on your application decision

Check your application decision in your mySAIT account. Based on the transcripts and documentation we've received, your application will be evaluated and assigned a decision from the list below.  

Decisions aren't final and your application will be re-evaluated as it progresses through the admission process. 

Step Four: While you wait


Check your email

Within a week, you will receive an email acknowledging that SAIT has received your application. The email will include your SAIT ID number and instructions on how to login to mySAIT.

If your contact information changes, complete this form and submit it to Office of the Registrar.


Review your application decision in mySAIT.ca

Within six weeks, your application will be evaluated and updated to one of the decisions below. Monitor any changes to your application decision in mySAIT.ca


Take the next step

After your application is evaluated, your decision will be updated to one of the statuses below. When you submit updated documentation or progress through the competitive entry selection process, your application decision will be updated. 

Missing documents

'Missing documents' means we have not received the transcripts/documentation required to make a decision on your application. Review your application checklist to see the admission requirements needed for the program.

If your transcripts/documents aren't received within 30 days then your application decision will be changed to ‘Declined - missing requirements'.

Pending evaluation

'Pending evaluation' means your application will be evaluated for eligibility after the results of your transcript/document assessment are received.

In selection

'In selection' means you have met the admission requirements or submitted anticipated final grades and have been placed in selection for the program. Selection may be based on a career investigation, resumé and references, aptitude testing, academic ranking, or an interview. 

  • Review your program's admission information to ensure you're familiar with the selection dates and criteria. 

  • We recommend you add the 'sait.ca' domain to your safe senders list or you risk missing email messages critical to your selection process.

  • If your program has more than one step in the selection process, your application decision may be updated to ‘In continued selection'.

  • If you are not successful in the selection process or do not complete the selection criteria within the program's timeline, your application will be ‘Declined through selection'.

Waitlist

‘Qualified waitlist' means you are qualified for admission to the program but have been placed on a waitlist. You will be offered admission to the program if a seat becomes available.

  • Seats can be offered until the program start date — be prepared by having your funding and living arrangements in place.

  • If your application decision is ‘Waitlist/Documents Required', you need to submit your final transcripts before the transcript deadline. 

‘Secondary waitlist' means your application, transcripts, or documents were received after the program selection deadline. You have been placed on a secondary waitlist.

  • Review the program's admission and selection dates and consider applying for the next intake.

Applicants on a waitlist can apply for another program or have their current application moved to a future intake within the same academic year. Contact the Office of the Registrar and include your SAIT ID number.

Declined — missing requirements

'Declined — missing documents' means you have not met the minimum admission requirements for the program. If you submit additional transcripts and/or documents within the program's application period, your application will be re-evaluated.

Offered seat

"Offered seat' means you have been offered admission to a program. Congratulations! 

  • Contact Office of the Registrar to pay the tuition deposit and confirm your seat. 

  • Your tuition deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. The money will be applied to your account and will go towards your first semester tuition payment. 

  • If you pay your tuition deposit and are offered a seat in another SAIT program, you can transfer the deposit if the program starts in the same academic term. 

  • If your application decision is ‘Offered Seat/Documents Required', your offer is conditional. You need to submit your final transcripts before the transcript deadline. If you do not achieve your anticipated final grades, your offer of admission may be rescinded.

Confirmation Paid

'Confirmation paid' means that we've received your tuition deposit and your seat in the program is now confirmed. 

  • If your application decision is 'Confirmation paid/Documents Required', your confirmation is conditional. You need to submit your final transcripts before the transcript deadline. If you do not achieve your anticipated final grades, your offer of admission may be rescinded.
