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 for Winter 2021 will open Friday, Nov. 6. 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.

❗️ Important notice regarding COVID-19: please read before registering❗️

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 D2LB for some of my courses and D2LF for others?
This is assigned to courses for internal reporting purposes. Make sure to review the Winter 2021 program delivery to confirm if your classes will be online or blended.

Checking your schedule

Your schedule for Winter 2021 — 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 types mean?

  • Online Synchronous — Your instructor will deliver scheduled lectures at the times listed.
  • Online Asynchronous — You can log in at any time. Your instructors may assign deadlines to specific tasks or projects.
  • Online Remote Access — You'll need to log in to a specific room at a specific time. Note: these classes will still be online. You will not physically attend class on campus.
  • Class — You’ll attend face-to-face class on campus. Check the building and room for your on-campus class location.

Please note: 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. This can be requested from the Office of the Registrar after your registration is complete.

Check your tuition balance

Your tuition balance will be available through mySAIT after you register. The tuition payment deadline for Winter 2021 is Dec. 8, 2020. 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.

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.
