Course registration

All students will receive an email from SAIT when registration opens. Usually, this will be about two months before the first day of classes.

To register, you’ll choose a block of courses or individual courses as applicable to your program through mySAIT. Register before your tuition payment deadline and register early to secure a seat in your required courses.

Please note: Pre-employment electrician students starting on Monday, Aug. 24 were registered by SAIT. 

Registration and schedules

After you're registered in classes

Course registration kicks off a number of steps including tuition balance, confirmation of enrolment and schedule.

Pay your tuition

Once you have registered for your classes, you'll see your tuition balance in your Account Summary on mySAIT under the myStudent tab. Tuition and fees for the semester will be due on the first business day of the month before classes begin. For example, if your classes begin in September, your tuition payment deadline will be Tuesday, Aug. 4.

As a full-time student at SAIT, there are many ways for you to pay your tuition and fees, including online banking, credit card and student loans.

Payment options

Confirmation of enrolment letter

If you need a letter to confirm that you're enrolled at SAIT or a form filled out in order to access RESPs, scholarships or other sources of funding, you can get one from the Office of the Registrar after you're registered in classes.

To request a Confirmation of Enrolment letter, submit a ticket to Freshdesk.

Class schedule

We’re working to minimize schedule changes. Schedules will be made available as they get completed starting Monday, July 6. These are subject to change with the final version published on Friday, Aug. 14.

You can find your schedule on your mySAIT account under your myStudent tab or in the Ellucian Go app.
