Adding Classes

Registration is completed through PAWS. In PAWS you'll be able to find:

Late registration for classes may be possible after the deadline for registration changes. You will need permission to take the class from the department and instructor and will be charged a $35 fee for each class added.

If you decide not to attend the university after registering for classes or decide to stop attending classes, you are responsible for making sure you officially drop all classes before the Registration Deadlines in order to avoid academic/financial penalties. Not attending your classes does not constute an official withdrawal from the university. Read more about Student Responsiblities.

Dropping classes

If you drop a class before the deadline for registration changes, no tuition will be charged and your grades will not be affected.

After the deadline for registration changes, you will be charged a portion of the tuition, depending on how late you withdraw. You will also receive a grade of Withdrawal (W) if you drop before the withdrawal deadline.  You cannot drop a class after the withdrawal deadline.

Letters to prove your registration

If you need to prove to an individual or organization that you are registered in classes at the University of Saskatchewan, you may request a Confirmation of Enrolment letter.

Thesis students must register in 990, and in 994 or 996. 

  • 990 seminar course (according to program requirements) and

If you need assistance registering for classes due to a disability, please contact Disability Services for Students.

Please note that you cannot repeat a class for which you already have credit. Some colleges may have different or additional regulations on repeating classes, such as being able to repeat a class for which you have a grade between 50% and 59%. 

Please contact your college office for further details.

Auditing a class means that you are able to attend lectures but are not entitled to participate in class discussions, hand in assignments, or write mid-term or final examinations. You do not receive any credit for the classes you audit.

If you audit a class you will have a grade of AU on your student record, unless the instructor determines that your attendance was not sufficient to earn an audit grade, in which case a grade of withdrawal from audit (WAU) will be assigned.

Registering for an Audit Class

Find out if you need permission to audit the class. Perform a Class Search. In the results if "Audit Allowed with Permission" is listed under Attributes, you need permission. If it is not, you do not need permission.

If you need permission

You must fill out the Audit a Class form in which you are required to get the signatures of the instructor and the department head signifying their approval and bring it to Student Central. This form is intended only for students who register using PAWS. Consult with your College if you do not register using PAWS.

If you do not need permission go directly to Student Central to be registered Note: Registration as an audit student is not allowed prior to the start of classes.

Changing from Credit to Audit

This change must be made before the Withdrawal Deadline (permission may be required). If you change from credit to audit before the deadline to receive 50% tuition credit, you will be charged 50% tuition for the class. If you make this change after this deadline you will be changed 100% tuition for the class. There may be additional implications for the student fees you are charged. Please contact Student Central for more details.

Changing from Audit to Credit

After the Deadline for Registration Changes you will require permission and this change must be made before the Withdrawal Deadline. A $35 fee will be charged if this change is made after the Deadline for Registration Changes. For more information on changing to or from audit status, contact Student Central.
