Graduation Ceremonies Update

In-person graduation ceremonies were not possible in June 2021 given the public health orders in place at that time. We are planning to offer graduates the opportunity to celebrate at walk-through events in October 2021 in line with Public Health Orders

See 2020 Graduation Events for details on how we hosted those walk-through events in October 2020.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Silver Medal Award and Valedictorians for Brandon, Winnipeg, and Parkland Campuses have been selected for the 2020-21 academic year.

Registration for these events is closed. Registrants have been emailed detailed information about their event.

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.
