First Year Registration Guide

First Year Students

Registration Guide:

The 2017-2018 registration guide will be posted near the beginning of May once class schedules have been completed. 

Advanced Placement:

The University of Saskatchewan recognizes the academic excellence of students enrolled in the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) program. The College of Engineering will accept credit for AP MATH 110.3 (with a grade of 4 or higher), as fulfilling the MATH 123.3 First Year Common Core requirement. 

Students with AP credit for MATH 110.3, however, are strongly recommended to take the MATH 123.3. This is to ensure that they have the best foundation possible to meet the academic demands of MATH 124.3

Math Placement Test:

Students registered in MATH 123.3 are required to write an online Mathematics Placement Test (MPT) developed by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The test is designed to assess competency on precalculus mathematics, and to determine whether the student has the necessary prerequisites for succeeding in University calculus courses. For more information and to take a sample Math Placement test, please visit 

First-Year Learning Communities:

At the University of Saskatchewan, a Learning Community (LC) is a small group of students who share common courses, interests, and/or residence. Engineering LC students meet weekly in an LC Hour with two upper-year university students called Peer Mentors. To register for the ENG LCs, please visit 

The Learning Communities sign-up system will open for first-year students in Engineering on Monday, May 8th, 2017 at noon (CST).  These Learning Communities have very limited space, we strongly advise registering as soon as possible.

Note: The University of Saskatchewan uses email as an official communication tool, and the Engineering Student Centre will send you important messages throughout the year. Please ensure you regularly check your PAWS email. 

Arts and Science Students

Effecitve August 4, 2015, undergraduate students registered within the College of Arts and Science can request to register in first-year courses offered by the College of Engineering. While registration is not guaranteed, undergraduate students registered within the College of Arts and Science must complete a College-Level Restriction Form for Non-Engineering Students.
