Admission Requirements

Regular Programs 

All regular programs require an equivalent (from your home country or another Canadian province) to a Manitoba Grade 12 diploma, including a “Language Arts” (in your first language) in the 12th year of study (or later). Most programs also require a Mathematics in the 12th year of study (or later). 

The Admissions Requirements and Documents chart below describes the educational requirements for many countries. Download Chart of Admission Requirements by Country

Some regular programs (primarily in our Technology programs) require an advanced level of Mathematics, or a minimum grade in Language Arts. See "Admission Requirements" on each program page for this information. 

All applicants must meet English language proficiency requirements. Please visit our English Language Proficiency page to ensure you meet requirements. 

You will also need proficiency with keyboarding and basic computer applications, as you will do much of your schoolwork using a computer, and many programs do not teach these skills.  

Post-Graduate Programs (We Call These “Advanced Diplomas”)

These programs require completion of a related college diploma (two year minimum) or university degree. All applicants must also meet English language proficiency requirements. 

ELP English Language Proficiency

English is the language of instruction and communication at Assiniboine Community College (ACC). All applicants educated outside of Canada must demonstrate ability in English that will meet the demands of classroom instruction, discussions and written assignments. 

Assiniboine International offers English for Academic Purposes classes in Brandon, Manitoba.

Assiniboine International also has  Pathway Provider Partnership Agreements with some language schools in Canada.  Students registered at a recognized pathway school are admitted on a conditional basis. Pathway schools provide programming designed to help the student meet the English language requirement needed for an identified Assiniboine Community College academic program.
