Follow the steps below to get ready for university!

1) Accept your Offer of Admission

In your Admissions package, there is an Acceptance Form. You must complete and submit this form to the Admissions Office OR complete the form online HERE. This step is necessary before you attend your advising appointment because you won't be able to register in courses until your confirmation has been received. For quota programs (i.e., Education, Journalism and Nursing) this step is necessary to hold your spot in the program.

            * Nursing students: please check your acceptance letter for your steps to accept your offer.

Study Permit/Visa Students

5 Steps to Success

1) Obtain your Visa

Apply for your student visa. You will need your original acceptance letter to the University of Regina, and other supporting documents to apply. Check with the Canadian Embassy or Consulate nearest you on what you need to apply for a student visa. Do this early because it can take weeks to process a visa. If you are successful you will receive a letter of approval, which you need to obtain your study permit when entering Canada.

2) Find housing

The University of Regina has many options for housing. You can live by yourself, with a roommate, or in dormitory or apartment style housing. It is important to apply early as residence fills up quickly. If you prefer to live off-campus it is important that you have made arrangements before you arrive.
