GRADE 10 - 12 (High School Students)

Please note that effective immediately, all students immigrating to Saskatchewan high schools for the 2024-25 school year will require a secondary level credit transfer equivalency assessment from either the International Qualification Assessment Service (IQAS) or the International Credential Evaluation Service in Ontario (ICAS). The cost of the IQAS or ICAS assessment is the responsibility of the student and family. The assessment is for secondary level course registration only.

FAQ - Credit Transfer Process Change

Students may apply for this assessment prior to arriving in Saskatchewan. They will have the opportunity to arrive in Saskatchewan with the assessment completed, thus eliminating the wait to register in secondary level programs. They must also request that a copy of the assessment from ICAS or IQAS be sent directly to or via mail at
