Counsellors' Seminar: Held annually in September, this professional development day for counsellors provides updates on admission requirements, scholarships and U of M programs.

Open House: High school students, school groups, mature learners and parents are invited to explore campus and experience a day in the life of a university student at our annual open house in February.

Presentations and Outreach

Student Recruitment visits schools in the fall (October-November) and spring (May-June) for in-class presentations. Contact us for more information about a presentation at your school.

Group campus tours for school groups are also available upon request throughout the year. Contact us for more information or to book a tour.

Manitoba Grade 12 Student Grade Collection

The University of Manitoba requests high school grades from schools and school divisions on behalf of applying grade 12 students in Manitoba. A key component of this process is the provincial ID number - please encourage students to include this number in their applications.

As part of the application process, each Manitoba high school student gives the University of Manitoba permission to request grades on their behalf. A secure file is sent to school or school division contacts who create electronic grade files to submit securely to the U of M servers.

The school or school division can expect the grade request from the University of Manitoba at the end of March for students who apply by March 1. At that time, we expect all final grade 12 marks for courses completed up to that point as well as interim or mid-term marks for the second term. For schools that are not on a two-semester system, we receive some form of official mid-term assessment. We encourage grades to be sent by mid-April so decisions can be processed based on official grades.

An additional grade request will be sent out in the middle of June. At that time, we expect all final grades and graduation details to be included.
