Accessing Your Child's Admission/Registration Information

Once a student submits an application, their information remains confidential. The University of Manitoba is precluded by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) from releasing information on any applicants to anyone other than the applicant themselves or members of educational institutions such as high school counsellors or principals.

The status of an application or any other applicant information is not public information. Unfortunately, the University of Manitoba cannot release any applicant information to parents, family members, or friends without prior written consent of the applicant.

In order to release information to a second party, a student must present the Admissions Office with a consent form. A separate consent form must be handed in to the Registrar's Office to access registration and other current student information.

Download the Release Consent Form or contact our Admissions Office at (204) 474-8808 (toll free: 1 (800) 224-7713 ext.8808) or admissions@umanitoba.ca.
