Spike in uRegina applications from Alberta won’t affect Saskatchewan students, VP says

June 14, 2013

Saskatchewan students hoping to attend the University of Regina won’t be negatively impacted by a rise in Alberta students applying to the university, an official says. VP academic Thomas Chase says cuts to Alberta’s PSE sector seem to have caused the applications from Alberta to double this year, but assures hopeful applicants that “no Saskatchewan student would be excluded from admission because we are taking students from other jurisdictions including Alberta." Meanwhile, the University of Saskatchewan is expecting 500 Alberta students this year, a 10% increase from last year, CBC reports. CBC
