What's your acceptance rate? I intend to take a course in dentistry, and I intend to be a specialist in extraction. Do you offer courses in that? -Faith W.

Hi Faith, Great question! We only offer the pre-dentistry programming you might be interested in. As I'm sure you are aware, there are qualifying years of undergraduate study required before you can apply to a Dentistry program. Pre-dentistry is not a degree by any means but students can select pre-dentistry at the time of application when entering, for example, the Faculty of Science at the U of R. This means your Academic Advisor would be able to note your interest in a professional program and offer you extra guidance and support to help you reach those goals. You would be working toward a degree of your choosing while here (ie. Biochemistry). However, at the same time you would likely be taking advantage of some of the extra supports our institution and Federated Colleges have in place to give our students a strong chance at acceptance into the professional programs they desire. These include course bundles, application workshops, study groups, etc.

Hi Marvin! Yes, we do. We require a minimum of two A-level courses and three O-level courses with grades of A, B, or C. Those are the general requirements but we also have faculty-specific requirements depending on the particular program you want to apply to. You can see all of that information at this link: https://urconnected.uregina.ca/oldadmissionreqs/gcerequirements.ezc

In response to the dentistry question that was asked earlier. Does the University of Saskatchewan set aside a certain number of spots in their Dentistry program for UofR pre-dentistry graduates / is there is a relationship with the programs?

Hi Jennifer! The University of Saskatchewan does not save seats for students applying from the University of Regina specifically (or even for those applying from the University of Saskatchewan itself). Instead, they reserve 22 places in their program (out of 28) for Saskatchewan residents (as per this link: http://www.usask.ca/dentistry/admissions/index.php). They define Saskatchewan Resident on their website as someone who resides in Saskatchewan for at least four years immediately prior to September 1 of the year which admission is sought. Some students do complete an entire undergraduate degree (typically 4-5 years depending on the student) before applying to or being accepted into Dentistry. Based on your question, you may be interested in checking out our Living Learning Communities as well. We have a new one coming in the Fall specifically for Pre-professional students to live together in a residence community, take required classes together, and receive additional supports and programming to support them in their long term academic goals. You can check out additional details here: https://www.uregina.ca/student/residence/future/llcs/pre-professional-llc.html.
