We have a variety of programs to choose from.

High School Accelerated

Students in grades 11 and 12 are able to take up to two credit courses per semester. The courses in this program are specifically scheduled for high school students.

  • KIN 170 - Lifestyle, Health and Wellness - begins May 4
  • ART 220 - Two-dimensional Art - begins July 6
  • ECS 100 - Knowledge, Schooling and Society - begins July 6

High School Accelerated students are also allowed to take any first-year University of Regina undergraduate course.

Summer Bridge

This program is for all grade 12 students who have already been admitted to the University of Regina in Fall 2020.

There are two courses available to students:

  • ENGL 100 - Critical Reading and Writing - begins August 4 (pre-reading begins July 8)
    • English 100 counts as a core credit in all programs at the University of Regina and most programs require it. The course develops students' proficiency in critical reading and writing through the study of a wide range of non-literary and literary texts and the study of composition.
  • MATH 102 - Pre Calculus - begins August 4 (pre-assignment period begins July 8)
    • This course is recommended for students who feel they could use extra time learning basic math skills before taking MATH 103 or MATH 110. The purpose of this course is to enhance students' abilities to express, visualize and model real-world problems through an understanding of common functions and their graphs. This course will count as an elective in most faculties and will count as the required math course in the Faculty of Arts.

There is a virtual ORIENTATION on July 8, and it is recommended that all students attend the orientation.

Students in this program have access to skill building workshops, including topics such as reading strategies, note taking, time management and study skills. Participating in these interactive workshops helps students overcome common challenges that many first year students face. 

This program is a unique three-week program to meet our great instructors and staff, other new students and benefit from getting a head start on your degree. This program qualifies for Student Loans if needed, to assist in covering tuition and textbooks. Apply now to enrol in the program and receive all the benefits that we offer!

The High School Accelerated program was a defining moment in my academic career. I personally think it’s the best preparation for university that a high school student can get.

There are also specific supports built into these courses designed to help you be successful.
