Course Description

This course is a great opportunity for students in Grade 12 in preparation for university.  Check out course details here.

This course follows the U of S schedule which is not aligned with the high school schedule.   

There are extra fees (tuition for the U of S) associated with this course;  there are NO fees charged by the DLC.  So, if you get an automatically generated DLC invoice stating that you owe $500, please ignore it.   

Also, this course may require exam supervision at a school.

DLC Role vs. U of S Role

A dedicated Sun West DLC teacher will support students through the registration process, help to resolve issues that arise throughout the course and serve as a liaison between the student/parent and the post-secondary institution.   

The U of S instructor will provide all instruction, clarify content, and conduct assessments.

Registration Process

1.  Phone (306) 252-1000 or register online with the DLC to ensure your high school credit is properly recorded.  

2.  Upon receipt of that form, you will be emailed an application form to fill out and send to the U of S.  This form advises of a one-time U of S student application fee of $90.   This fee, along with all tuition costs, must be paid directly to the U of S.  There may also be other fees associated with this course including textbook or other resource costs.

The application form and fee can be sent to or dropped off at:

Admissions and Transfer Credit
105 Administration Place
University of Saskatchewan
Saskatoon, SK
S7N 5A2

If you have questions regarding the process, email or call (306) 966-6718.

3.  Once your application is processed, the U of S will email notification to you and payment will be due immediately.   Your admission letter will provide the credentials needed to access your U of S student account (PAWS) where you can learn about outstanding fees and payment options.
