In Summer Session, all students new to the University of Manitoba who have completed less than 24 credit hours at another post secondary institution are required to apply to University 1. University 1 is the first year of most degree programs. It provides the freedom to choose from a variety of academic disciplines, or the opportunity of satisfying established entry requirements to a desired faculty or school.
Students who have completed 24 credit hours or more of course work elsewhere can apply directly to a faculty or school.
Mature students are those who are over 21 years of age, do not meet high school requirements, have never attended another university/college or have completed less than 24 credit hours, and are either a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Go to Undergraduate Admissions – Mature Student for more information.
Individuals seeking admission as a mature student are advised to contact Admissions at 204-474-8808 or e-mail: Admissions@umanitoba.ca for information and regulations concerning mature student admission.
Visiting students are those who wish to enroll in a course(s) at the University of Manitoba with the express purpose of having the credit transferred to their home university. Normally, new visiting students apply for admission to General Studies (Extended Education)
For more information, please go to Undergraduate Admissions – Visiting Student
If you wish to attend lectures for a particular course(s) but do not want to complete the assignments or write the exams and, therefore, not receive a grade or any credit hours upon completion of the course, you can apply for admission to General Studies (Extended Education) as an Auditing Student. Auditing student admission is restricted to Canadian Citizens/Permanent Residents. No documentation other than the information requested on the application form is required for admission purposes, however, it is highly recommended that students obtain permission to audit a course from the instructor prior to applying for admission. If, at some point, you wish to take a course for credit, you are required to apply for admission to another applicant category. Written consent to audit a course is required from the course instructor before registration can be approved by the Dean/Director’s representative.
You may apply as a special student if you wish to enrol in degree credit courses for personal or professional reasons, but are not interested in pursuing a degree. Courses completed may subsequently be accepted as credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate at the discretion of the program dean or director.Go to Undergraduate Admissions – Special Students for more information.
Go to Undergraduate Admissions – Returning, Re-Admission, or Continuing Students for more information.
Note that students who were previously registered but have not been in attendance for one year or more should contact their Faculty/School office to determine if they are eligible to register.
