Registration and Schedule

All SAIT students must register to secure their courses. If you’re a continuing student, self-registration may be a new process.

Registration opens approximately eight weeks before each semester.

  • Registration opens in November for Winter (January-April)
  • Registration opens in March for Spring/Summer (May-August)
  • Registration opens in July for Fall (September-December)

Registration is currently open for Fall 2021 and Winter 2022. All students will receive an email from SAIT when registration opens.

Register before your tuition payment deadline and register early to secure a seat in your required courses. If you register in a course after the tuition payment deadline, your tuition will be due immediately.

πŸ‘‰ mySAIT will be down for maintenance starting at 4:30 pm on Friday, Nov. 19 through Sunday, Nov. 21. You will be unable to access any component of mySAIT including registrations during this time. Learn more about the outage and impacts.

Before you register

Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, SAIT will require members of the SAIT community to be  fully vaccinated against COVID-19. You'll need to acknowledge you are aware of this requirement to choose your courses.

πŸ’» Review Vaccination verification and familiarize yourself with SAIT's Mandatory Vaccination Protocol.

When you register

To register, you’ll choose a block of courses or individual courses as applicable to your program through mySAIT.

The courses you can choose are based on your progress within your program. This means any previous course withdrawals could result in registration errors. You may also run into issues if courses are full. Please speak with your program advisor or academic chair if you have any questions about space or progression in your program.

You may encounter one or more errors when you try to choose your courses or block. If you receive one of the following errors or any other registration error and you’re unable to resolve it, speak with your program advisor or academic chair.

Pre-requisite error
You may be told pre-requisites prevent you from registering in one or more courses. This means you’re missing a course from a previous semester required to take a current course.
Co-requisite error
You could be told you’re not registered in the co-requisite course. This means there is a corresponding course you also need to add. Your program advisor or academic chair can help you find the correct course.
Link error
You’ll get a link error if you register in a course that requires a corresponding lab. Speak with your program advisor or academic chair to discuss availability for required labs.
Field of study error
There are times when a course may be reserved for a specific program or major. If this happens, you’ll be told your field of study prevents you from registering.
Time conflict
This means you’ve selected two courses scheduled at the same time and you need to adjust your choice.
Closed section
This means the course section you selected is full. You’ll need to adjust your choice.

Registration FAQ

Can I drop one or more courses after I choose my block?
This will depend on your program. If you’re in a fixed block, you can only switch to a different block of courses if there is one available pending space.
Why am I being told a time-ticket is preventing my registration?
This will usually happen if you’re trying to register for a course before registration opens. If this occurs after the registration begins, contact the Office of the Registrar.
What should I do if my chosen course is full?
Contact your program advisor or academic chair to discuss your options if your chosen course is full.
How do I drop a course?

We recommend you speak with your program advisor or academic chair before dropping any courses. If your program is an open registration or adjustable block registration program, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to mySAIT
  2. Select the myStudent tab
  3.  Choose search and Register for Classes
  4. Click Register for Courses
  5. Choose ‘Drop” from the action field next to the course you want to drop and submit to save the change.
I’m trying to drop a course, but mySAIT won’t let me?

You’re unable to drop a course in any of the following situations:

  • Your program doesn’t allow you to make online changes
  • You’re only registered in one credit course

Please speak with your program advisor or academic chair for more information.

Why do I see D2LF for some of my courses?
This is assigned to courses for internal reporting purposes. Make sure to review the Winter 2022 program delivery to confirm if your classes will be online or blended.

Checking your schedule

Your schedule for Winter 2022 — including class dates and times — will be available through mySAIT or Ellucian GO after you register.  

Course dates and times are subject to change. Check your schedule again before your first day of classes.

Making sense of your schedule

Overlapping courses

This happens when multiple courses occur at the same time during different weeks. You can clarify the exact date and time for each class in a particular course by reviewing the schedule details tab.

What do the different course meet types mean?

Course delivery/meet type What it means

Online Asynchronous
( OA)

Courses are online but are not scheduled at a specific time (like a distance education course, students work on their own time). Students should consult Brightspace D2L for specific course completion dates and deadlines. 

Online Synchronous
( OS)

Courses (lectures usually) are fully online and scheduled at a specific time that the students are expected to attend.
Online Remote Access
( OR)
Courses are online and scheduled at a specific time and the students are required to attend and remotely log into the room listed.
Online/Face to Face
( OF)
Courses are scheduled for in-person delivery. We will deliver these courses in-person in alignment with the Government of Alberta's staged reopening plan. If COVID-19 restrictions were to increase, we would follow government guidelines and move these courses online.
Class courses
( CLAS)
Courses (labs usually) are scheduled at a specific time and are delivered on campus in the room(s) listed.

Check your schedule regularly as it is subject to change.

Confirmation of Enrolment

Some financial institutions may require a letter confirming your enrolment to release RESP funds. You can request a Confirmation of Enrolment through your mySAIT account after you’re registered in your classes. Review student letters for instructions.

If your financial institution requires us to sign a form, upload the appropriate forms and submit a ticket through Freshdesk.

Check your tuition balance

Your tuition balance will be available through mySAIT after you register. Check your tuition payment deadline. If you don't pay your tuition before the deadline, your registration will be cancelled. Learn more about payment options.

Adding and dropping courses

The timeline to add and/or drop courses is based on your program and the number of weeks you're registered for a specific term. If your program term is less than 15 weeks or if you’re on practicum, you’ll have a shorter time period to add/drop courses.

Term length Add/drop deadline
13 or more weeks Second Friday from program term start date
8-12 weeks First Friday from program term start date
2-7 weeks Two days from program term start date
Less than two weeks There is no add/drop period

To find the add/drop dates for the current academic year, see Important Dates.

Add/drop online

If your program is open registration or includes adjustable blocks, you will be able to add and drop courses through your mySAIT account. Follow these steps:

  1. Log in to mySAIT
  2. Select the myStudent tab
  3. Choose search and Register for Classes
  4. Click Register for Courses
  5. Choose ‘Drop” from the action field next to the course you want to drop and submit to save the change.

If you can't add/drop online due to a course restriction, contact your program advisor or academic chair.

Droping individual courses during add/drop will result in a different refund than cancelling your entire program. See Tuition and Fees to find the refund eligibility rules.

Program withdrawal

If you are withdrawing from your program, you'll need to complete a Program Withdrawal form. Meet with your program advisor or academic chair to complete this step. Failure to do so may result in unsuccessful grades assigned to your classes.

Contact

Please contact your program advisor if you have any problems choosing your courses.
