Graduation Ceremonies Update

In-person graduation ceremonies will not be possible this June (2021) given the public health orders in place. We are planning to offer graduates the opportunity to celebrate at ceremonies this fall. See 2020 Graduation Events for details on how we hosted those walk-through events this past fall.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Silver Medal Award and Valedictorians for Brandon and Parkland Campuses have been selected. We are still accepting applications for this year's Winnipeg Campus Valedictorian. Deadline for all applications and nominations for the Winnipeg Valedictorian is Friday August 6th, 2021.

President Mark Frison surprises 2020 graduates

For six Assiniboine graduates, a surprise came early when college president Mark Frison hand-delivered their parchments in June 2020. Certificates and diplomas were presented to each graduate, abiding by the provincial public health recommended physical distance.
