New Students

Welcome to St. Thomas More College and the University of Saskatchewan!

We hope that your first year will be exciting, challenging, and rewarding. There are a few key things that you need to do in order to be successful at university.

Before classes start:

1. Prepare for Registration

2. Register for Classes

  • New first year St. Thomas More College students can register for September and January terms, using PAWS. (2017 initial registration access date for new first-year STM students is Saturday June 17)

  • STM has a writing class, that any student can take, called INTS 103.3 "Writing for Academic Success". This course will help you write better essays and assignments, and that means better grades.

  • Apply for St. Thomas More College Awards for Entering Students.

3. Prepare for arrival

Once classes have started:

  • Go to class and get started on your readings/assignments. Seriously!

  • You can pick up a copy of "How to Get Good Grades at College/University" from Student Services (Rm. 146 STM)

  • Join one of the many student organizations at the college to meet new people, have fun, and for co-curricular learning experiences.

  • Don't wait for your graduating year to start planning your career.
