I’ve been accepted for a credit program scheduled to begin in May — are those moving online or are they cancelled?

In response to concerns over COVID-19, some of our spring programs may be postponed, moved to an online format or rescheduled for a later start date. We’re starting to communicate with accepted students — you’ll hear from us soon.

If I’m starting a credit program in May, when do I register for my courses?

Block course registration opens Monday, March 30. You’ll receive an email with step-by-step instructions on the registration process.

Can I be refunded for a credit program that hasn’t started yet?

If SAIT isn’t cancelling classes, the refund policy still applies. If a student cannot attend classes because of medical reasons or travel restrictions, SAIT will evaluate those situations on a case-by-case basis.

If you feel you need to change your registration or would like to speak with someone about your options, please contact the  Office of the Registrar

If you’re an international student, the  International Centre is also available to answer questions by phone 1.403.284.8852 and email  international.advising@sait.ca

Can I defer my admission to a later time?

SAIT typically does not defer admission but we are currently exploring options in light of COVID-19.

Do online courses meet my credit program requirements?

Online content will provide the same curriculum requirements as classroom-based learning, while leveraging technology to enhance learning from a distance.

Will I still get support from student services learning online?

Even if you’re not physically on campus, you’re still part of the SAIT community. Student supports are still available remotely — this includes tutoring, coaching, writing support, career advising, counselling and lots more — we’ve got you covered.

Since classes are now offered online, will the price of tuition be lowered?

Many students have recently inquired about tuition costs, especially given the recent switch to alternate delivery as a result of COVID-19. The cost to deliver our programs has not changed with the transition to online learning. Domestic tuition fees represent the cost, less government subsidies, to deliver the programs. International tuition is not subsidized and tuition costs represent the full cost of the program. Costs include and cover instructional staff, administration, equipment, infrastructure and maintenance, as well as ensuring our curriculum aligns with quality standards and industry needs.

For these reasons, tuition is remaining as listed on our website. However, some of our auxiliary services and the upcoming semester have been suspended — this includes UPass and recreation fees. 

Also to note, as part of its annual tuition review process, SAIT conducts a pan-Canadian analysis of SAIT's programs against comparable programs in other Candian institutions to ensure our tuition rates remain competitive and students receive high value for their tuition dollars while continuing to receive a world-class education. 

How can I get a feel for SAIT if I’m not there?
