Technical support and resources
Technical support for students is available for general troubleshooting — access to SAIT's wireless network, storage and printing, assistance with anti-virus or hardware issues and resources such as mySAIT, Brightspace (D2L) and more.
Managing your course schedule
Students are automatically registered into their semester courses. If you wish to make changes to your schedule, add a course or drop a course you must meet with an Academic Chair or Student Services Coordinator — made only with their approval — during the add/drop period at the beginning of the semester to put together a suitable timetable.
If you are a student who wishes to switch their entire block schedule, you must find another student in the other block to switch with and changes can be made online.
You can view your course schedule online at mySAIT:
- For classes starting in September, your schedule is available at the beginning of August
- For classes starting in January, your schedule is available at the beginning of December
If you are on academic probation, you will be notified through your SAIT email account. It is your responsibility to check your SAIT email regularly.
Students who fail to achieve the specified minimum semester GPA or cumulative program GPA at the end of a term will be placed on academic probation. The Office of the Registrar will notify each student in writing regarding the terms of their academic probation.
Tuition and financial aid
Paying for your education can feel overwhelming, but there are resources and programs that can help, including information about your payment options, student loans, grants and scholarships.
Health and well-being
School and life are rewarding but can be challenging and sometimes stressful when unexpected concerns interfere with your personal, academic or career goals. Counselling is free and open to all students attending SAIT.
Be proactive about your success at school and enhance your learning, studying and test-taking skills with support from an academic coach. A coach can help you with time management, reading strategies, exam prep and effective note-taking or improve your understanding of a tricky concept by tapping into the expertise of a tutor or become a tutor yourself.
