Immigration - Prior to Arrival
You may be required to produce the following documents on your arrival at the Canadian port of entry:
- Study Permit or letter of intent;(CIC - information on study permits)
- passport, with Canadian visa where required;
- original letter or copy of acceptance from the University of Saskatchewan;
- evidence of financial support; and
- a list of any items that you are sending separately (i.e. not cleared personally on your date of arrival).
Your Study Permit, passport, letter of acceptance, and proof of financial support should all be returned to you. Make sure the Canadian immigration officer signs the form, has you sign the form and puts an entry stamp in your passport.
Please note the following:
- Under no circumstances should you leave for Canada without a valid Study Permit (CIC - Applying for a Study Permit outside of Canada (PDF)) or letter of intent (and visa where required) and all the necessary documents to obtain the permit (and visa). It is difficult to change from a visitor to student status after you have entered Canada.
- Students who have been studying at a secondary school or other university or college in Canada must ensure that their Study Permit is valid for the University of Saskatchewan before attending lectures.
- Dependents of international students do not need to provide a letter of acceptance from the school or proof of financial ability.
- Some graduate students will have been admitted without having met the TOEFL (or equivalent) requirement of 213 (computer-based) or 550 (paper-based) or higher with the restriction that this requirement will have to be met before they are allowed to register. We strongly urge such students to take the TOEFL and meet the required score before leaving for Canada. Students who prepare for the TOEFL in Canada must pay their expenses themselves.
St. Peter's College and partners such as University of Saskatchewan will help you with immigration matters.
