|USask president’s update on fall planning|
In a recent release on May 5, USask President Peter Stoicheff announced that:
“While we are preparing to have many programs, classes and labs return to in-person delivery in September, and much more than we had in this past term, the Fall Term should be considered “transitional” as we will continue to offer some classes remotely. We will likely not complete our full transition out of pandemic operations until at least January 2022, at the beginning of Winter Term.”
Learn more about how students can determine if their classes are scheduled to be remote or in-person below. Registration for fall/winter classes
All students eligible to register for classes will receive information about class registration by email, and can find detailed class registration info on the classes and registration page. We are also sending additional class registration instructions to students who sign up for a Learning Community(LC) or are starting classes in the College of Engineering since the class registration process is slightly different for these groups.Class delivery informationWhen searching for classes, students should pay close attention to the attributes column, which will include details on whether the course is in-person or remote.“Class Taught Remotely” means the class/lab is scheduled for remote delivery and will not be in-person“Class is offered on-line only” means the class/lab is taught entirely through a web-based teaching method and will not be in-personIf a class/lab does not have the “Class Taught Remotely” or “Class is offered on-line only” attributes, it is currently scheduled to be offered in-person, regardless of whether a classroom location is currently assigned. Room assignments will not be completed for in-person classes until closer to the start of the fall term; students should not assume that classes with no room listed will be remote. Always check the “Attributes” column.Students registering for a class with a required lab should always check the “Attributes” column for both the class and lab section. A class that is delivered remotely may have in-person labs.Class delivery is still being finalized by many colleges. After class registration opens, some classes may switch from in-person to remote and vice versa. If the class delivery type changes, students should be contacted by email by the college, school or department offering the class. However, we suggest students check a few times throughout the spring and summer to see if the class delivery type has changed for any of the classes they have registered in.Important class registration dates: June 12Starting at 9:30 am, registration opens for first-year students entering the College of Arts and Science and College of Education*Starting at 12 pm, registration opens for first-year students entering the Colleges of Agriculture and Bioresources, Engineering, and Kinesiology and Edwards School of Business*First-year Education students and students entering the Kinesiology/Education Combined Program must register for Education LCs as part of their program requirements along with their other classes.
