When to Apply | Assiniboine Community College

When to Apply

For most programs at Assiniboine, (those that do not involve special selection procedures), qualified applicants are admitted on a first complete, first served basis. You'll qualify for admission to a program once you have met all admission requirements. You can submit an application up to one year prior to the program start date. We start processing and accepting applications in November for the following September intake.

If you meet admission requirements, and there is space in the program, you will be sent an acceptance letter. You will need to confirm your acceptance by sending us a $400 (domestic) or $800 (international) tuition deposit before the deadline stated on your acceptance letter.

Wait lists

If there are more qualified applicants than the program capacity, you may be put on a wait list. If a seat becomes available, we offer the seat to applicants in date order. If a seat does not become available for a program, you will be given the opportunity to have your application moved forward to the next program intake date, unless you tell us to cancel your application.

Applicants are admitted on a first complete, first served basis, and are placed on wait lists in the date order that their complete application was received. Waiting list priority may be provided to scholarship winners and/or varsity athletes.  

Wait lists for high-demand programs

In exceptional circumstances, if the number of applicants greatly exceeds the number that can be accommodated, applications may be suspended for a period of time. This is currently the case for Practical Nursing at our Winnipeg Training Centre.
