How to Register
SAIT has moved to a new registration process for all continuing education courses and programs. All students will need to set up a new account as of May 2020.
- To set up a student account, go to our student login page.
- Create a new user account.
- Once you've set up your student account, you can log in as an existing user to make purchases and access your student profile, including enrolment history and course schedule. You'll receive further instructions on how to access mySAIT and Brightspace (D2L), as well as a Student ID number.
There are multiple ways to register in a non-credit course or program — payment's required at time of registration.
You can register directly through any course or certificate page and add it to your shopping cart. Click on the shopping cart icon and fill out the required registration form to complete your purchase.
We offer flexible courses and certificate programs during evenings, weekends and online throughout the year.
Study at home. You'll complete your course work through Brightspace (D2L), an online learning platform.
Complete a portion of your course work online with a blended offering, with any hands-on components completed on campus.
Attend classes on-campus using Brightspace (D2L) to submit course work.

A student may audit a course by declaring their intention at the time of registration.
Once you have audited a course, you'll participate in the class but won't be formally evaluated on your performance. A grade of "AUD" will appear on your transcript, with no letter grade or credit attached to it.
A recommended prerequisite is a success factor when taking a course for sequencing and skill-building for the next level course. Bypassing the recommended prerequisites doesn't give you credits for the course.
Certificates, licenses or special skills are considered special requirements and will be reviewed before the first day of class.
Students taking courses through continuing education should complete the program declaration form and indicate what it is they are working towards. When a program is declared, you'll be able to see it reflected within your student account as well as in mySAIT and, on your academic transcripts.
Declaring a program ensures you're audited at the time of completion for the courses within your current certificate.Complete a program declaration
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment service offered to determine transfer credit based on previous post-secondary courses or informal, non-formal or experiential learning.
To receive a credential you can only use up to 50% of any challenge exams, course equivalence or transfer credit that is not from the actual courses.
Students enrolled in a certificate program must complete all required courses within five years to be eligible for a certificate. The five-year timeline begins on the first day you start your first course toward your certificate program.
