International Application Process

International Application and Admission Process

Suncrest College is a member of the Saskatchewan Colleges partnership. This partnership between Suncrest College, Great Plans College and Northwest College. Saskatchewan Colleges manages the international recruitment and admissions for all three independent colleges centrally.

Your first contact at Suncrest College will be Kristy Sletten, Manager of International for Saskatchewan Colleges. She will help answer any questions about the application process, student visas, community connections and becoming familiar with campus life. Please contact [email protected] you have any questions or concerns.

International Students are very important to Suncrest College! We have a set amount of seats within each defined program allotted to International Students; however Suncrest College does run on a “First Qualified, First Admitted” Policy which means those who apply, meet the program requirements, and pay their tuition deposit will be given the seat in our program.

So Apply Early! Due to Study Permit processing times, we urge all students to have their application complete by May 15 to increase the likelihood of a Study Permit Decision before the start of the class. Suncrest College encourages International students to pay through Flywire because if a refund is required it will go back in the exact same manner in which it was received.

Suncrest College does not defer applications from one year to the next.

Suncrest College sends all official correspondence to the email address stated on an application form.
