All students who are new to the University of Manitoba (UM) must Apply for Admission. Applications are also available in the Admissions Office at 424 University Centre or by calling 204-474-8808 (toll free 1-888-216-7011).
Students applying to the UM on the basis of high school standing will normally be admitted to University 1, a first year program designed to provide a foundation for studies in Arts, Science, and the professional disciplines. Exceptions to the University 1 pathway exist for some programs.
Students who have completed 24 credit hours or more of university level courses at other institutions, and students who have completed at least one year at recognized community or technical colleges may apply directly to the faculty or school of their choice. Credit for work completed at other institutions is assessed by Admissions at the point of admission (except for General Studies applicants) in accordance with the rules and regulations of the faculty concerned.
Students who have not completed senior level secondary school, are 21 years of age and older, and wish to complete degree programs at the UM will be admitted to University 1.
Special Students are those who wish to enroll in degree credit courses for professional or personal interest and who are not seeking to complete a degree currently. These students may require degree courses to meet specific entrance requirements, for career development, or to make informed decisions about career direction.
Special Students apply to General Studies (Extended Education).
Visiting students are students who are registered at another institution who are taking one or more courses at the UM on a Letter of Permission from their home university. These students apply for admission to General Studies (Extended Education).
Former students who have attended other institutions since their last registration at the UM must apply to the Admissions Office for re-admission unless this attendance was on a Letter of Permission from the UM.
Students whose past registration has not been for one or more years must seek formal permission to re-register from the office of the Dean of the faculty concerned.
Students who have graduated from the UM and wish to resume studies must re-apply for admission.
