E. Transfer Credit Information

At the University of Manitoba, all prior course work from recognized post-secondary institutions will be considered as part of the application for admission process for our undergraduate degree and diploma programs.

Courses are evaluated for advanced standing or transfer credit on a course-by-course basis and assigned a University of Manitoba equivalent, where applicable. Where a direct equivalent does not exist, students may receive general (unallocated) credit. The regulations regarding transfer credit are program specific and vary considerably depending on the faculty or school of application. Faculties and schools will only consider external courses completed within the last ten (or fewer) years.

Courses deemed acceptable for transfer credit will be awarded, subject to program approval, up to the maximum allowed under the program of admission, based on the Faculty or School’s transfer credit policy and residency requirements (consult the section of the University's Academic Calendar for details).

Students may be asked to provide comprehensive and  accurate course outlines or syllabi, as issued by their institution of study, for all courses lacking a current  evaluation. Course outlines or syllabi should include information on course objectives, outline of the units studied, textbook(s) used, assignments, and accompanying laboratory information, if applicable, to assist in the transfer credit assessment process.  An online transfer credit resource is available for information on current course evaluations receiving credit.

While we appreciate that some institutions do not have course information readily available, many students have been able to provide the information requested by contacting the individual departments or instructors at their prior institutions. Students that are unable to provide the requested course information may render themselves ineligible for programs with specific course requirements. In cases where outlines have not been provided, unsuccessful course attempts, including F grades, may be assessed as part of the academic assessment regulations of a student's program of study. Only successful applicants will be notified of transfer credit results. 

Additional information related to transfer credit is available on the Admissions website.

Transfer credit information

LPNs

Licensed Practical Nurses who completed the Practical Nursing Program at Assiniboine Community College or the Diploma in Practical Nursing at University College of the North within five (5) years of admission to the College of Nursing may be eligible for advanced standing in the Bachelor of Nursing Program. Please indicate on the application form if you are an LPN grad from either program. Contact a Nursing Student Advisor for information.

RPNs

Registered Psychiatric Nurses may be eligible for advanced standing in the Bachelor of Nursing Program. Please inform the College of Nursing at the time of admission if you are an RPN.

Section 4: Selection Process

A. Calculation of the Adjusted Grade Point Average (AGPA)

The Adjusted Grade Point Average (AGPA) will be calculated as follows:

(0.3 x the core course average)*
PLUS
(0.7 x the average of the most recent 45 credit hours)**

* The core average will be calculated on the most recent attempts of the following courses:

  • BIOL 1410 Anatomy of the Human Body
  • BIOL 1412 Physiology of the Human Body
    • (or Biol 2410 and Biol 2420)
  • MBIO 1220 Essentials of Microbiology
    • (or MBIO 3010)

** Note: Only courses completed within the last 10 years prior to admission to Nursing will be used in AGPA calculation. The most recent 45 credit hours of University level work, including the original grades of any repeated courses if these fall within the most recent 45 credit hours. If an applicant has less than 45 credit hours, the AGPA will reflect all credit hours completed (i.e., a minimum of 30 credit hours to a maximum of 45 credit hours).

In the calculation of the AGPA, all university-level courses which have been assigned a final grade are considered completed university work, including failed and repeated courses. Courses graded “pass” are excluded from the calculation of AGPA. Courses completed on a full-or part-time basis in all undergraduate and graduate programs will be used in the AGPA. However, Summer 2024 courses will not be included in the AGPA calculations for admission in Fall 2024, Fall 2024 courses will not be included in the AGPA calculation for admission in Winter 2025, and Winter 2025 courses will not be included in the AGPA calculation for Summer 2025.

A grade point average higher than the 2.5 minimum is recommended as admission is competitive.

Notes

  • It is the applicant’s responsibility to inform the Admissions Office in writing of any deferred exams and grade changes. All final grades, including grade changes must be submitted to the Admissions Office by the document deadline in order for them to be included in the final selection process. Grade changes will not be accepted after the documentation deadline date. If a grade is not available by the documentation deadline date, an ‘F’ grade will be used in the final admission determination and calculation.
  • Should a grade be retained on your record yet excluded from your institutional GPA calculation, that grade will be used to meet admission requirements and the GPA calculation for your application to the University of Manitoba.

B. General Category Selection Process

In the General Category, the AGPA will determine the applicant’s placement on the rank-ordered selection list. The applicants with the highest AGPA scores will be considered for admission.

C. Canadian Indigenous Category Selection Process

In the Canadian Indigenous Category, applications will be selected based on the following:

1. Supplementary Score

The supplementary application forms of applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will be evaluated by the Canadian Indigenous Category Subcommittee. The applicant will receive a score out of a maximum of 40.

2. AGPA

The AGPA will be calculated as indicated previously.

3. Admissions Score

The Admission Score will be calculated from the AGPA and Supplementary scores. The AGPA will contribute 60 % and the Supplementary scores will contribute 40%.

The Admissions Score will be calculated as follows:

(AGPA x 60) + Supplementary Score
4.5

The Admission Scores will be ranked. The applicants with the highest Admissions Scores will be considered for admission.

Up to 30 admissions spaces may be offered to applicants in the Canadian Indigenous Category per application year (Fall, Winter, Summer). Spaces will be allocated as follows: Fall – 15 spaces, Winter 10 spaces, Summer – 5 spaces.

The Admissions Committee shall not be bound to admit the maximum number of applications in any given year.

D. Tie Breaking Procedure for Offers

In the event of a tie, the following procedure will be used:

  1. Increase the number of significant figures used in the calculation.
  2. Where a tie still exists, the application that was received first will be used to break the tie. All completed applications are time stamped upon submission; in the case of a paper application, these applications will be time stamped after they have been entered into the system by a University of Manitoba Admissions Office staff member.

E. University College of the North Collaborative Nursing Program

At times, a seat may become available in the University College of the North (UCN) Collaborative Nursing Program where classes for the BN program are offered at one of the two UCN campuses in The Pas, MB and Thompson, MB. Applicants to this program are required to meet the same admissions requirements as applicants to the Fort Garry Nursing program (see: Section 9: Other, B. Bachelor of Nursing Program). The University College of the North Collaborative Nursing program has one intake in the Fall only.

Applicants will have the opportunity, at the time of application, to select if they would like to be considered for this program if they are not competitive in selection for the Fort Garry Nursing program (Fall term applicants only). Those who are selected for these will be required to (temporarily) relocate to either The Pas or Thompson for the duration of the degree. UCN Collaborative Nursing program students are not eligible to apply for Fort Garry campus in subsequent terms.

F. Notification of Decision

Decisions will be posted to the applicant’s portal. Applicants must log into their application portal to view the decision and to accept or decline their offer. If the offer is not accepted and the subsequent deposit paid by the deadline date indicated in the letter, the offer will lapse. Lapsed offers will be considered a declined response. It is imperative that email accounts remain current and that emails and application portals are regularly checked.

In order to accept an offer of admission a nonrefundable deposit of $100.00 will be required. The deposit will be applied to tuition fees at the time of registration.

Section 5: Reconsiderations & Appeals

Individuals who wish to have their applications reconsidered should submit their request in writing to the Chair of the Selection Committee. Past experience has shown that most inquiries can be satisfied at this level without further reference. Persons wishing reconsideration of the decision of the Selection Committee shall direct their request to the Chair within ten (10) business days of the posted decision date (see Section 8: Contact Information).

Should the student wish to pursue the reconsideration decision further, such an appeal will be made in accordance with the Senate Committee on Admission Appeals Procedures.

Applicants are advised that appeals of reconsideration decisions by the Chair of the Selection Committee and the Senate Admissions Appeal Committee focus on questions of correct adherence to published policies and procedures outlined in this document, and not on subjective issues or the relative merits of the application.

Section 6: Counselling of Applicants

The College of Nursing and Admissions Office are able to assist applicants who seek counselling regarding admission to the College of Nursing. However, it is policy not to instruct applicants as to a specific course of action they should follow, but rather to provide the information needed for applicants to make their own choice with respect to the alternatives available. The following points require special attention:

  1. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their plans with all who can usefully advise them, but they should be aware that second and third hand information about admission policies may not be accurate.
  2. No official at the university can guarantee the admission of any applicant. Admission is determined by the Committee on the basis of an annual competition.
  3. All applicants are advised to supplement any personal enquiries with a written request so that an official written response can be made. It is only these written responses which will be considered as evidence of any advice given (see Section 8: Contact Information).

Section 7: Student Accessibility

The University of Manitoba is committed to providing all students equal access to learning opportunities. If you are a student with a diagnosed disability (permanent, chronic, or temporary) who may require academic accommodations, please contact Student Accessibility Services at 204-474-7423 or by email at student_accessibility@umanitoba.ca to learn more about the confidential supports that are available.

Section 9: Other

A. Professional Designation

A graduate of the Bachelor of Nursing program must write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to become eligible to practice nursing. Completion of the program entitles students to work as graduate nurses and to write the NCLEX to obtain the designation, Registered Nurse (RN). Application and registration information can be obtained from the College of Nurses Manitoba (CRNM) website.

Visit the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba website

B. Bachelor of Nursing Program

Nursing education is centred at the Fort Garry campus in Winnipeg, but the College of Nursing also offers its program in partnership with University College of the North in the northern communities of The Pas and Thompson, Manitoba.

In order to increase the number of undergraduate Nursing graduates, students admitted to the Bachelor of Nursing program at the Fort Garry campus will begin an accelerated delivery in which the program will be delivered across three terms per year as opposed to two terms per year. Nursing students will be required to attend all consecutive terms of study. This will allow students to complete the program up to one year ahead of the regular schedule.
