The Limited Admission program recognizes that previous high school experience is not necessarily the only indicator for the potential for success at university. For students who are missing high school entrance requirements, university often becomes the best environment to learn and thrive.
Students are admitted under the Limited Admission category if they:
- have an entering average from high school of less than 70%; or
- do not have a minimum 60% in grade 12 university entrance-level English.
Because Limited Admission students may need to develop specific background knowledge and skills before entering their target faculty, University 1 has developed a system of supports and student responsibilites designed to ensure first year success. These include:
Pre-Registration Session - The Pre-Registration Session outlines the details of the Limited Admission program and introduces students to the University of Manitoba. Newly admitted Limited Admission students are required to complete the Limited Admission Pre-Registration Session and Quiz before registering for classes - there is a hold on student accounts until the session and quiz are completed.
Student Success Workshop - The first few weeks of classes are often an adjustment period for most students as they may be faced with large amounts of challenging work and a limited time to accomplish it. To assist students with this adjustment, the Limited Admission program offers a workshop to help students develop reasonable goals for their term and introduce some time management strategies. The Student Success Workshop is prepared jointly by the U1 Academic Advisors and the Academic Learning Centre.
To fulfill their Limited Admission program requirement, all students in the Limited Admission program taking courses in the Fall Term are required to register and attend a Student Success Workshop. Information will be mailed to students in September.
Term Appointments with an Academic Advisor - Appointments are available for Limited Admission students to meet with an advisor in the 6 weeks prior to the Voluntary Withdrawal deadline of both the Fall and Winter Term. These appointments give students the opportunity to ask any questions they may have with an advisor, assess their performance to date, discuss their plans for the term and determine if any additional assistance is required. Students are asked to bring their course syllabi and any course feedback that has been received to the appointment.
