Academic Options

Visiting students may only register for courses listed on the Letter of Permission or registration form, if there is space available and they have completed course work equivalent to UWinnipeg's prerequisites. It is important to confirm that you have completed the required prerequisite courses. UWinnipeg departments have the right to restrict registration if prerequisites have not been completed.

A list of our departments and subject areas can be found in the Course Calendar. Pre-requisites are listed for each course. To see what courses are being offered in an upcoming Term, go to WebAdvisor, choose "guest" and search for course sections; then check for pre-requisites in the "Areas of Study."
