Spend a Day at Assiniboine | Assiniboine Community College

Spend a Day at Assiniboine

One day can change your life!

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
  • Meet current college students and instructors

When can I Spend a Day?

Registrations for the 2019-20 Spend a Day program are now open, however we are not scheduling any dates until November.

If you're interested in more information for one or more of our programs we are also hosting free information sessions

Assiniboine's Spend a Day program runs from November to March for most programs, each academic year. Most programs have scheduled dates throughout the year, planned to accommodate classroom activities. We ask for at least three weeks’ notice to be able to coordinate your Spend a Day visit.

Please note: Depending on the time of year and where students are in their term (e.g. holiday breaks, exam weeks, practicum placements), it may take a number of weeks to coordinate a visit.

What happens after I submit my online registration to Spend a Day at the college?

The Recruitment Office will receive your registration and contact you by email to confirm some details and ask a few more questions. Please ensure you check your email's junk mail so you don't miss a communication from us. After we have confirmed those details, we will forward your request to the department for the program you are interested in. They will confirm the date with faculty and confirm the date, details and logistics for your day with you.

What will my day be like?

The Spend a Day program is a full-day commitment for most programs, generally from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

If you are looking for a shorter option to explore programs, consider attending a one-hour program information session. Check out all of the ways you can explore our college.

When you arrive on-campus at the designated 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 success advisor to discuss admission requirements, financial aid and student supports available while attending college. 

What does it cost to Spend a Day?

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

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.
