Students who have items in their locker will be able to come to campus to clean it out. You  must sign up in advance and review the requirements. The health and safety of our employees and students remains our number one priority.

Working with the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services, we have made the decision to deliver the majority of Fall 2020 programming online. The health and safety of our SAIT community remains our top priority, and the decision was made in consideration of provincial health restrictions and guidelines.

Most SAIT classes will be delivered remotely, supported by virtual meeting technology and simulations.

We are looking at delivering a limited number of in-person labs and classes on campus, with start dates yet to be determined. Learn more about  class="intLink">Fall 2020 program delivery.

After careful review, SAIT has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all in-person  summer camps for the season.

Ultimately, our ability to host a high quality camp experience in balance with health and safety recommendations from the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services isn’t feasible at this time.

Camp fees will be refunded.

To help our campers keep learning, keep exploring and keep active this summer, we’re fine-tuning a series of free online summer camps. More details coming soon.

On May 12, 2020 SAIT made temporary adjustments to AC.3.1.1 Grading and Progression procedure. The grading adjustments apply to the Winter 2020 term only. For students who are unable to provide official documentation due to school closures or travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, SAIT will accept electronic copies of documents sent to  credentials.transcripts@sait.ca directly from the school. In addition, The Duolingo English Test has been added to SAIT’s list of acceptable options to demonstrate English Language Proficiency for Spring 2020, Summer 2020, Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 admission. Please read the full temporary  adjustment document for more information.

SAIT’s 2020 Spring Convocation Ceremony will be held online on  Thursday, June 18 at 1 pm. Everyone who applied to graduate is invited to virtually attend.

In April, when we announced the postponement, we hoped an in-person ceremony would be possible. Due to the size of our ceremonies, regardless of restrictions being lifted, our community is not ready for this.

We've chosen to move ahead with a virtual ceremony. We didn’t want to wait another minute to celebrate our graduands' achievements. There is no cost to attend.

The Government of Canada has announced $9B in financial support for students affected by COVID-19 through a number of initiatives, including the  Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB).

Post-secondary students eligible for COVID-19 emergency aid can apply for the CESB starting Friday, May 15. Look for SAIT as the "Southern Alberta Institute of Technology" under educational institutions.

On Thursday, April 30, the Government of Alberta introduced  Opening Soon: Alberta’s relaunch strategy. The plan outlines various stages, if conditions are met and physical distancing practices remain, on how and when businesses and operations can resume. SAIT is reviewing the plan specific to our institution's operations. The health and safety of our employees, students, campus community and community at large remain our priority and we will take the time needed to ensure the necessary procedures and protections are in place for any reopening of campus, for any reason.

Grading

For the Winter 2020 term, upon completion of a course and the notification of a letter grade, students will now have one of three options:

  1. keep their letter grade and have it calculated as part of their GPA
  2. choose a Credit Grade (CR) instead of their letter grade
  3. withdraw with no tuition refund.

Once a student receives their letter grade, SAIT will send an email to students with a link to an online form and a deadline date to confirm their chosen option.
