Fall 2020

Program-specific information

We are excited to have you begin your studies with us or return to your program this fall. The  majority of full-time, regular  programs will be  structured in a blended delivery model this fall, meaning students will study remotely for portions of their program and be on campus (in-person) for other portions of their coursework that require access to  college facilities and equipment. You can read more about our general approach to fall programming here.

Below you will find information about each of our full-time programs with fall start dates. Additional information will be communicated directly to students via their college email accounts, so make sure you’re checking that regularly!

Technology Needs & Bring Your Own Device

With partial remote and online learning across many programs, most students will require access to computer devices at home and may be required to bring these on campus when instructed in their program. Please refer to our Technology Requirements webpage about the needs of your program.

Class Schedule

As a new or returning student, you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office once you are registered, and will have access to your fall timetable through MyACC no later than July 31.

Face Masks, Shields and Coverings

Assiniboine campuses are 'mask expected' environments. This means outside of program spaces requiring personal protective equipment (PPE) to support safe work procedures, face masks will not be mandatory, but the college will expect people to wear them. Individual programs will identify what PPE will be required as part of their safe work procedures, and will identify details surrounding this to students.

Self-Isolation Requirements

If you are arriving in Manitoba from outside of Canada, or certain regions within the country, you may need to ensure you plan for the required self-isolation period. You can read more about our self-isolation resources here.
