Many SIAST students benefit from transferring credit.

This option allows you, as a Saskatchewan post-secondary student, the flexibility to complete your program in a way that best meets your needs.
Students in programs at either the University of Regina or the University of Saskatchewan can take some courses toward the program through SIAST if they are offered in a preferred alternate format. Alternate formats involve various evening, off-site and distance course deliveries.
There is no charge, and no transcript fee for returning course results to the home institution. U of R and U of S students simply review and complete the Visiting Student Application and Course Approval Form and Guide (pdf) and submit it to their home institution.
- Do you want to check if a CPR or First Aid course qualifies for equivalency credit with a SIAST course?
For SIAST transfer credit guidelines, please review SIAST policy A-1.2 (pdf), Recognition of Prior Learning: PLAR and Transfer Credit
If you do not qualify for transfer credit, but you have experiential learning or informal training, Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) may be an option.
Transfer credits for students enrolled in SIAST Basic Education are not covered within this policy. If you are a Basic Education student, you can obtain more information from your program head or counsellor.
