The University of Saskatchewan (USask) has partnered with Saskatchewan education institutions for over 40 years to provide students with opportunities to study and learn close to home. Today, approximately 1,500 USask students study at off‑campus sites through face-to-face, online, independent study and live-streamed classes. You can begin your USask program and, in some cases, complete a degree without leaving your home community. This flexibility will allow you greater balance with family, work and other life commitments. Smaller class sizes with more student/teacher interaction, program and career counselling, essay writing support, tutorials and course-focused group discussions are available at all off-campus sites.

STUDENT LEARNING SERVICES Student Learning Services (SLS) helps students make the most out of their academic experience at USask. SLS offers workshops, online resources and tutors to help students with writing, studying, math and statistics. USSU CENTRES The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union (USSU) operates a number of centres for enhancing the student experience. These centres include the Women’s Centre, Pride Centre, Help Centre, and Food Centre. The USSU centres are open to all students, and provide resources, support and services in a warm, positive atmosphere.

SUPPORT for students Starting university is one of the biggest transitions you will make in life. At the University of Saskatchewan (USask) we have supports in place to help you through this transition and your university career. ACCESS AND EQUITY SERVICES Access and Equity Services is guided by Saskatchewan’s Human Rights legislation and the duty to accommodate individuals based on a medical or learning disability, religion, family status (including pregnancy) or gender identity. Services include exam/academic accommodations, notetaking, classroom changes, alternate format textbooks, assistive technology and academic strategy.

THERAPY DOGS St. John Ambulance therapy dogs visit campus frequently to help students de-stress. Petting a dog can increase levels of the stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and decrease the production of the stress hormone cortisol. 12

LEARNING COMMUNITIES Learn to adapt more quickly to university and benefit from the mentorship of successful upper-year students by registering in a Learning Community (LC) in your college. In an LC, you will get to know a small group of other new students who are taking some of the same courses as you—courses that you share an interest in, or courses that are part of your degree requirements. Participating in a LC is one of the best ways for you to take charge of your learning and to develop skills to help you succeed in this new academic environment. It is also a great opportunity to make new friends! STUDENT WELLNESS CENTRE The Student Wellness Centre offers urgent and non‑urgent physical and mental health care to USask students and their spouses and children.

CHILDCARE AND COMMUNITY USask operates three child-care centres and offers convenient breastfeeding locations for nursing mothers. In addition, Parents on Campus is a community group focused on providing support, advocacy and events for USask families.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT AND STUDY ABROAD CENTRE Visit the International Student and Study Abroad Centre to meet students from around the world, learn about opportunities to study abroad or access services for international students. ABORIGINAL STUDENTS' CENTRE Staff at the Aboriginal Students' Centre (ASC) are committed to supporting the personal and academic success of Métis, First Nations and Inuit students. ASC creates an inclusive community through personal, social, cultural and academic programs and services held throughout the academic year.

Plan Your Finances TUITION Tuition for most undergraduate programs at USask is calculated by adding up the cost of each individual class in which you enroll. For many programs, there is a wide range of classes from which you can choose, giving you a great deal of flexibility in terms of your schedule and budget. Student fees are used to fund specific student benefits offered as part of your university education. These include fees to support athletics and recreation programs, student services, health and dental plans, your students’ union and the U-Pass Universal Transit Pass that allows you unlimited travel during the school year with Saskatoon Transit.
