Requirements

Our post-secondary college programs require an equivalent of a Manitoba Grade 12 high school diploma. Most programs also require the equivalent of Manitoba Grade 12 Mathematics and/or Language Arts. Some have a minimum grade requirement as well. Please check each program's Admissions Requirements. Please note, a "40S" in Manitoba means the 12th year of schooling; in many countries, this is called "senior" or "higher" secondary level.

English Language Proficiency

If your English level does not meet our English language proficiency requirement, you can apply to our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program and a college program to follow. We begin 14-week EAP sessions in January, May and September each year. Note: many college programs have only one intake each year; you are welcome to contact us at international@assiniboine.net to ask about program intake dates before you apply to EAP.

There are pathways to further your education or receive transfer credits for past studies. Please see Careers and Connections on each of the program's web pages for more information about agreements.
