Science Experiment

There are various types of students looking to study at The University of Winnipeg. From high school students in Canada to visiting university students from China, our students are at all stages in the pursuit of their academic path. We look forward to having you join our community.

To assist you with the application process, it is important for you to determine your “applicant type” so you know what you need to be considered for admission. Read through all of the categories, and then click on the one that best describes you.


High School (Manitoba)

You are a current high school student studying at a school in the Province of Manitoba, and expect to graduate from Grade 12. Students from Manitoba high schools can self-report their Grade 12 marks on the application.

High School (Out-of-Province)

You are a current high school student studying at a school in another Canadian Province, and expect to graduate from Grade 12 (or equivalent). 

Audit

You wish to complete courses for interest only. You want to attend a lecture(s) at the University, but you will not receive any credit. 

Accelerated

You are a high school student who is ready to start university early. You still have to complete some high school courses to graduate, but would like to take a limited number of University courses too.

Concurrent

You still need to complete three or less high school credits to meet regular admission status. You plan to finish your remaining high school credits at The University of Winnipeg Collegiate while taking a limited number of University courses too. You might be a current high school student, or you might just need a few more high school credits to meet the prerequisites for certain university courses.

You must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, at least 21 years old in the year you first register for university courses, and you must not have graduated from high school or attended university or college.
