Future Students


Definition: You would like to complete some high school courses at your own high school while starting your studies at The University of Winnipeg. You can be admitted to a limited first-year program in the Faculties of Arts or Science while finishing high school. Most often dual credit courses are taken in second semester of Grade 12.

Successfully completed accelerated or "42U" courses (or equivalent dual credit courses in other Canadian Provinces) can be presented as part of the minimum high school requirements for admission, for qualification for entrance scholarships, and transferable university credit. For more information, please see the Accelerated Status Guide [PDF].

Who is Eligible?
