Self Declaration Information for Newly Admitted Students

All newly admitted students (students admitted for September 2020) must submit:

NOTE: Documents MUST be dated March 15, 2020 or newer. Any form dated prior to March 15, 2020 is considered stale-dated and is NOT acceptable.

Ideally, forms must be submitted no later than June 30 for registration to occur. As this can be a lengthy process we strongly recommend you act on this immediately, if you have not already done so.

Submission of Self Declaration Form, Criminal Record Check (including VS screening) and Child Abuse Registry check during office closure

While Manitoba remains in a state of emergency, you may find it difficult to obtain the Criminal Record Check (VS screening) and the Child Abuse Registry Self-Check.
Both the Winnipeg Police Services and the Manitoba Child Abuse Registry Office offer an online option:

Manitoba Child Abuse Registry:

Winnipeg Police Services:
(must include Vulnerable Sector screening. Do not use non-police force service)
However, if you are not a resident of Winnipeg, you may have difficulties obtaining your Criminal Record Check (CRC) from your local law enforcement agency (RCMP, Brandon City Police, Ste. Anne Police, etc). Please call them to find out if you can request a CRC at this time. Please monitor the situation with their office and order as soon as you are able to do so.

Due to these difficulties for rural students, we will be permitting registration in July without the Criminal Record Check as long as the other 2 forms have been received. However, should we not receive the CRC by August 31, we will cancel fall registrations and you will not be able to attend. We recommend that you submit the other 2 forms (Self Declaration form and Child Abuse Registry form) as soon as you can.

Once you have received your forms you can choose to wait until our offices are, once again, open to the public and bring them to the office or you can choose to mail them to our office. However, you should keep in mind that the mail service may have slower than normal delivery times.
Our goal is to have all students "registration-ready" by June 30.

In the meantime, please print the Self Declaration form, complete it and mail it to the address below.
The forms can be mailed to:

Faculty of Education – Admissions Coordinator
Student Services
Room 203 - Education Building
University of Manitoba
Winnipeg, Manitoba   R3T 2N2

These admission documents are subject to the same rules as other documents and your admission could be revoked if not provided in time to register.

Originals of the Child Abuse Registry Self-Check and the Criminal Record Search must be submitted to Student Services, Faculty of Education (Room 203 Education Building) where they will be verified and copied. All originals are returned to the student. As these are legal documents we will NOT provide a copy of the photocopy at a later date for other purposes.
