Current Status

Saskatchewan Polytechnic experienced a cybersecurity incident October 30, 2020, which disrupted our operating systems. Students are encouraged to visit the Access to Learning & Services tab for the most current list of operating platforms and services that have resumed, and all necessary instructions to access and log in to them. We are making progress resuming services in a phased, secure manner. FAQs are also regularly updated and may be the fastest way to find answers to your questions right now.

Please know that IT Services, external experts and third party suppliers are working together with departments and schools to fully resume operations and services for you. At this time, some services are not available. As we make services available, they may not be offered in quite the same manner as previously. Regularly visit us here for the most current information. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

saskpolytech.ca is now back up with limited functionality.
