Accessing Courses and Using PAWS

Email communication with our office must be done through your PAWS account. Please ensure that you check this email on a regular basis. All course information will be sent to you through your PAWS email account.

How to Register for Classes

Once you have been admitted to the program, you will receive an electronic admission letter that will include your University of Saskatchewan Student number, your NSID (Network Services ID) and temporary password, which will allow you to access PAWS. PAWS is the Personalized Access to Web Services for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. You will then be permitted to register for classes online. Instructions for online registration can be found in the Registration Guide or at: paws.usask.ca 
 
Please see courses for the Course Reference Number (CRN) for each PHC class. Before you register, please be aware that it is your responsibility to make sure you have the required prerequisites and other class-specific requirements. Please ensure that classes selected are appropriate to your stream, including the number of classes needed to complete requirements for graduation.  
 
You must register online by the deadline dates or you will be charged a late registration fee. Registration automatically results in a financial obligation. Download the Registration Guide for assistance.
 
To register  for a class:
•    Log into PAWS  
•    Select the Academics Tab

Late Registration Fees 

A late registration fee of $35.00 per course will be charged when you register after the deadline dates, whether or not permission to register late has been obtained. Late registration fees are non-refundable. 

Audit Provisions: You may choose to take courses on an audit basis. You will be assessed the same fees as credit students thus having the same rights regarding access to the instructor, writing of term tests and completion of assignments, but will not be permitted to write the final examination nor will a final mark be assigned for an audited course.
