Spend a Day at ACC | Assiniboine Community College

Spend a Day at ACC

One day can change your life!

Spend a Day with Assiniboine Community College

The Spend a Day program is a great way to “test drive” a program to find out if it’s the right fit for you. When you register to spend a day, we will partner you with a current student in the program of your choice and you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in classroom activities
  • Experience college life
  • Explore all of our helpful services for students (student advisors, Learning Curve)
  • Meet current college students and instructors
  • Discover the many career opportunities available for ACC graduates


When can I Spend a Day?

Assiniboine's Spend a Day program runs from November to March for most programs, each academic year. We try our best to accommodate any specific date requests you may have, based on classroom activities and we ask for at least two weeks’ notice to be able to coordinate your Spend a Day visit.

What will my day be like?

When you arrive at the designated Assiniboine campus and meeting place, you will be partnered with a current student from your program of interest. You will attend classes with your student host and participate in hands-on classroom activities. You will also have an opportunity to meet with a student advisor to discuss admission requirements, financial aid, and personal supports available while attending college. We will even provide you and your student host a free lunch from the ACC cafeteria! Parking will be provided, if you require, for the entire day.  

What does it cost to Spend a Day?

Absolutely nothing! Parking is free and we will provide lunch for you and your student host.

How do I register for a Spend a Day?

How do I prepare for my Spend a Day?

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to ask on the day of your visit, so we recommend reviewing these helpful questions ahead of time. Be sure to write your questions down and bring them with you on the day of your visit.

If you have any questions before your Spend a Day visit, or even after it is over, please contact us at 800.862.6307 ext 8750 or email spendaday@assiniboine.net.


What if I need to cancel my Spend a Day?

If for any reason you are unable to attend your scheduled Spend a Day, please contact the Recruitment Office at 800.862.6307 ext 8750 or email spendaday@assiniboine.net as soon as possible and a recruitment team member can assist you. Several offices will need to be notified if you are unable to attend your arranged Spend a Day.
