201 - 18 Academic Calendar Cover

An Academic Calendar is a comprehensive document that covers degree and program requirements, course descriptions, and rules and regulations.

The Undergraduate Academic Calendar covers undergraduate (bachelor's) degree programs at The University of Winnipeg.

A separate Graduate Studies Academic Calendar is published for graduate (master's) programs.  A link to this document is on the left-hand sidebar. 

Use an Academic Calendar as a catalogue to browse through courses and explore different departments.  Use it as a reference tool to check requirements, regulations, policies and academic dates.

Please note that not every course listed in the Calendar will be offered in this academic year. Courses offered in an upcoming term are listed in the Timetable and in WebAdvisor

UPDATE:  The NEW 2017-18 Undergraduate Academic Calendar is now posted on this website.  See the left sidebar for all the sections of the Calendar. (If the sidebar is not visible, try making your browser window larger.)

The print version of 2017-18 edition is now available for $10.00 each at Student Central, 489 Portage Avenue.

Important Reminder
:  In the 2017-18 Calendar, all course descriptions in all academic departments are now contained in one large "ALL COURSE DESCRIPTIONS" PDF (instead of descriptions contained within each departmental pdf). 
Tip:  To search the large PDF more easily, download and open it using Adobe Reader and you'll see bookmarks of the departments.

See the sidebar for a link to the current 2016-17 Graduate Studies Academic Calendar edition.  A new edition is currently in production and will be available in mid-June.

Catalog Year

The catalog year is the year of the Academic Calendar containing the requirements a student must complete to earn a degree. Because degree requirements may change over time, a student may choose to change the catalog year to utilize requirements from newer or older calendars that fit best with their academic record. Students may not select a catalog year from years prior to the year of their admission to The University of Winnipeg.  To change your catalog year, please see  Forms.
