uSask education college suspends entrance interview

January 20, 2010

The University of Saskatchewan's College of Education has given its entrance interview a one-year hiatus while a committee researches a new method of evaluating applicants' interpersonal skills and life experiences. The number of students applying to the college has dropped significantly in the past 8 years, while resources needed to conduct hundreds of in-person interviews has increased. Admission for students hoping to get into the mainstream education program will be based solely on grades for the 2010-11 school year. The committee is expected to report to the college this spring.
