Info For Parents

My child is interested in a program - where do we start?

Visit Explore our College for a full range of program exploration options, including Spend a Day and program information sessions, or contact recruit@assiniboine.net to get started.

Can I get information about my child’s grades or attendance from someone at Assiniboine Community College?

If your child is at least 18 years old, we can’t share any private information (including information about their school performance) without their written consent.

What kind of money is available to assist my child with their studies?

Assiniboine offers thousands of dollars to students each year in the form of bursaries and scholarships. Some depend on academic performance (high grades), but others depend service to the community, or financial need. Each needs an application, but we encourage all students to apply at http://assiniboine.net/registrar/student-aid-awards/awards

Are there jobs available on campus?

Students are advised to check the Assiniboine website for information about jobs for students at the college (http://assiniboine.net/careers-at-acc). We also try to keep an up-to-date job board for students at http://assiniboine.net/students/job-postings.

Will my child have access to a drug and dental plan?

Yes. The Students' Association manages that for all students. See http://accstudents.com/ for details.

My child has a disability. How can we be sure that the appropriate accommodations are made at Assiniboine?

Please have your son or daughter make arrangements to see their Student Success Advisor.  Please call 800.862.6307 or 204.725.8700 ext 6639 to make an appointment. Further details about Accessibility and Disability at Assiniboine can be found on our website or by emailing ads@assiniboine.net

What about bus passes – are they available?

Yes. Students will receive those during Xplore ACC.

If my child needs parking, where do they go?

Parking fees are assessed for non-electrical and electrical spots and vary according to the campus attended. Please review our parking pages for information including fees. 

Are lockers available?

Yes. Students will be assigned lockers by their program staff members.

My child is really good at sports. Who do we contact to see about try-outs for a team?
