After you Register
We know you'll have some questions after you register — this list is a great place to start.
Submit a Program Declaration form
If you're working toward a non-credit certificate — such as a Certificate of Achievement or Certificate of Completion — submit a Program Declaration form or notify the Office of the Registrar. Your student record will be updated, making it easier to monitor your progress, check your graduation requirements through mySAIT.ca, or transfer credits in the future.
You can take courses without declaring your program but if your end-goal is to complete and receive a SAIT credential for a specific program, you'll need to submit your declaration before you complete 25% of the program's total credits (or a maximum of 15 credits, whichever is less).
Your SAIT email account
Your email account will be created about 10 days before your course begins and your email address will be in the format of 'email@example.com'. Check your email often for messages from your instructor and important student bulletins. Find out more about your SAIT email account.
Coming to campus
If you're taking an on-campus course, you'll be able to find your class location and schedule in mySAIT.ca.
Finding your classroom - if your class is located in room NR311, the 'N' refers to the building (in this example, it's the Senator Burns building), the 'R' refers to the wing, the '3' indicates the floor, and the '311' indicates the room number. Check the campus map below to find your building.
Parking - if you're planning on driving to campus, a limited number of monthly parking passes will go on sale on a first-come, first-served basis near the start of the semester.
Wireless access - access Wi-Fi on campus using your mobile device or laptop. Instructions on how to connect are available at wireless.sait.ca.
Starting your course
Whether you're taking courses on campus or online, you'll probably be using Brightspace (D2L), an online learning platform, to submit assignments and review course material. You can access your course through mySAIT or by going directly to Brightspace — your username and password are the same as your mySAIT login credentials.
Books and supplies
ID card - your student ID card (eCard) is your official SAIT identification that gives you access to facilities across campus. Find out where, when and why to pick up your ID card.
Bookstore - find and purchase your required textbooks online or in-person at the SAIT Bookstore.
Library - the Reg Erhardt Library provides SAIT students with free access to group study areas, computers, Wi-Fi and research support. Use your SAIT ID number and library PIN to borrow from our extensive collection of books, magazines, e-books, standards and online databases.
Campus services and support
Food on campus - we have several dining options on campus, open evenings and weekends.
Technical support is available if you're having trouble logging into mySAIT, Brightspace (D2L), the Ellucian app, or your SAIT email account. You can also get help with wi-fi and remote access and printing on campus. Learn more about technical support.
Campus SAFEWALK is a free, volunteer-based service dedicated to ensuring the safety of all SAIT staff, students and visitors when travelling on or near SAIT's main campus.
