Tuition and fee adjustments

Audit students

Tuition for auditing degree-level classes is normally 50% of regular tuition for the class. International undergraduate audit students will be assessed the international student differential of 2.73 times the audit tuition.

The following certificate programs offered by the Distance Education Unit will be charged 100% audit tuition:

  • Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CERTESL)
  • Prairie Horticulture Certificate Program (PHC)

International students becoming permanent residents

Students who become a permanent resident (PR) should submit proof of their status change to Student Central.

Effective May 1st, 2018, the university will only accept Permanent Resident Cards as proof of permanent residency. The Permanent Resident Card offers many security features and is the recommended official proof of immigration status by the Government of Canada. As a permanent resident, you will normally receive the card within 60 days of becoming a permanent resident. The university will update your student record upon receipt of your card and your immigration status will be updated to reflect the day you became a permanent resident (PR).   

Proration of international differential

International differential tuition will be prorated based on the date a student becomes a Permanent Resident (as indicated on their PR Card). 

If a student becomes a PR before the payment deadline in a given term, all differential tuition is removed. If a student becomes a PR after the payment deadline, differential tuition will be charged for the month in which the status changed, but will be waived for any subsequent months within that term.

Tuition, subject to certain restrictions, may be waived for persons 65 years of age and over up to a maximum of 15 credit units total during the Fall and Winter Terms (September to April) and a maximum of six credit units total in Spring and Summer Terms (May to August). The waiver applies to tuition only and students are responsible for any materials fees, laboratory fees, student fees and other class costs. The waiver extends to registration as an audit or credit student.

Waiver of International Tuition Differential for Native American Students from the United States of America

The University of Saskatchewan honours the Jay Treaty, 1794. Native American undergraduate and graduate students from the United States of America who fall under the Jay Treaty will be assessed domestic tuition and will have the international tuition differential waived. A federal tribal enrollment or registration card, or similar documentation, must be presented to be considered eligible. To have the international tuition differential waived, students must present their required documentation at Student Central.
