How to Apply | Assiniboine Community College
How to Apply

Step One

Review the list of programs available to international students. These are the only programs for which we accept international applications.

Step Two

Review the program information for the program you wish to study so that you have a good understanding of the program and its career possibilities.  We encourage you to choose a program you will enjoy and can be successful in, as it is very unlikely you could transfer programs after you arrive.

Step Three

Review the admission requirements listed in the program information, and the requirements for applicants from your country in the Admission Requirements chart. Pay attention in particular to specific course requirements, like Math or Science.  Also ensure that you meet the English language proficiency requirement.

Step Four

If you believe you meet the admission requirements listed, submit your application, including:

  • The completed international application form. Type as much of it as possible online, and then print it and sign it.  Often it is difficult for us to reading handwritten applications, which could mean we spell your name incorrectly, or can’t mail or email your correct address.  Note:  If you want someone to receive information about your application on your behalf, complete and sign the “Use of Agents or Other Representatives” section.
  • Non-refundable application fee of $150.00.  Please note: The application fee of $200 comes into effect on September, 6, 2017, for international students. Information about how to pay the fee is on the application form.
  • Transcripts of your (senior) secondary education or exam results. Notarized English translations of the transcript must accompany the document if it is in another language.
  • Transcripts of your post-secondary (college or university) education, if you have studied at that level. Notarized English translations of the transcript must accompany the document if it is in another language.
  • Proof of English language proficiency, which will either be a valid and acceptable test score, transcripts of appropriate education in Canada or a country on our test-exempt list, or proof of registration at one of our pathway schools.

You can scan the documents and attach them to an email to or you can mail the documents to Assiniboine International, Room 145, Assiniboine Community College, 1430 Victoria Ave East, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, R7A 2A9.

However, We require transcript(s) for all Canadian institutions you were enrolled in, even if you did not complete a semester or program there.  Canadian transcript(s), must be an official, original, hard copy document from the Registrar’s Office at the institution. No scans, photocopies, faxes or print outs accepted.  Send this document by ground mail or courier it (or bring it to our office). We will keep this document.

Mail/courier it to: Assiniboine International

If we see that you entered Canada in time to study at another institution, we will ask for the transcript from your Canadian studies.  If you do not provide this information with your application, this will slow down your application quite a bit. 

We begin working with an application only when it is complete, including all documents, the application form, and the fee.

Bring original foreign documents (both in original language and notarized English translations) to Canada. When you arrive at ACC, show them to our Admissions/Registration office, so you can be registered in classes.  If you do not provide original documents at this time, your admission could be cancelled. 

We encourage you to apply at least six months in advance of the start date to allow time for study permit applications.  Please note that enrollment numbers for all programs are limited, and complete applications are accepted on a "first-qualified, first-served" basis.
