You're Admitted! Now What?

By University of Regina Modified on March 16, 2020

We know the admission process can be confusing. Here's how to decipher your next steps.

The wide, open, modern student common room at the University of Regina.

1. Accept your offer of admission and send in final transcripts

First things first! Students, you should confirm your spot and decide if you'll be taking a Gap Year.

What's a Gap Year? At some institutions, admission and automatic entrance scholarships may be deferred for one year. Students who are interested in working, traveling, or volunteering in between high school and university often take advantage of a Gap Year Program.

Students, make sure you send in your final transcripts directly to the university once marks are officially in.

2. Apply for housing/residence

Out-of-town students should consider living on campus and apply! It's a great choice for all students — whether you're interested in living on your own, living with friends that you're starting school with, or just want to make some new friends — you've got plenty of options.

Living on campus is always a smart choice — it's the best of both worlds! Gain some independence and do it from the comfort and convenience of being right on campus.

3. Contact an academic advisor

Faculty academic advisors are great resources! Making the transition from high school to university can be difficult. Advisors can help with your next steps, selecting courses, and building a schedule.

Whether you have a firm plan of action and are connected to a certain faculty, or if you're undecided with which program you'd like to pursue, advisors are available to provide information on all university programs.

4. Budgeting

Time to think about scholarships and student awards! So many of these go unclaimed just because students do not apply for them. The money is there for students to take!

Make it a priority to sit down and go through scholarship and student award opportunities. You should make sure to schedule some time to look through the applications and fill them out. You won't regret it!

Never hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
