Changing of International Agent

Applicants to Assiniboine Community College may choose to engage an agent to aid them in the application process. Applicants provide agent information in their official application.

Your application is treated in the same way with or without the use of an agent. Assiniboine Community College does not give preference to students applying through an agent/representative. An agent/representative cannot guarantee you admission to Assiniboine Community College. Applying through an agent/representative will not “speed up” the admission process.

Below is the process should an applicant wish to change their international agent representation or remove an agent.

1. Changing Agents During the Admissions Process (to the Same Program)

Applicants to ACC are not permitted to change the agent on an existing application. If an applicant chooses to have representation from a different agent, they must first cancel their original application and submit a new application with the new agent listed. ACC does not refund any application fees on cancelled applications. Any tuition deposits paid are non-refundable and non-transferable. Applicants who choose to cancel their original application will lose any progress made.

When submitting a new application, applicants are subject to current program availability and are required to resubmit all materials with the new application including:

  • All required admissions documentation
  • Updated program selection(s)
  • Payment of a new application fee

If an applicant has already submitted an application to ACC and has accepted an offer of admission by paying the Tuition Deposit, it is too late to change the agent. Agent changes are not permitted once a letter of acceptance has been issued to an applicant.

2. Applying to a Different Program or Intake with a Different Agent

Applicants are only allowed to have one active agent on file at any given time, regardless of how many program applications they have. If another application is submitted with a different agent listed, this will be treated by ACC as a change of agent and the requirements noted in the section above ‘Changing Agents During the Admissions Process’ apply.

3. Adding an Agent to an Existing Application Account (Agent Already on File)

Applicants are only allowed to have one agent at any given time, regardless of how many program applications they have. Adding a new agent to an applicant account where another agent already exists is not possible.

Please review the section on ‘Changing Agents During the Admissions Process’ for information on removing an existing agent and adding a new agent to an active application. If a new application is submitted with a different agent, this will be treated in the same way as an agent change request.

4. Adding an Agent to an Existing Application Account (No Agent Currently on File)

Applicants who have already applied to a program without an agent are not permitted to add an agent to their existing application account.

If an applicant wishes to use an agent’s services, they must submit a new application with their new agent listed. Applicants are subject to the current program availability and will be required to resubmit all materials with the new application including:

  • All required documentation
  • Updated program selection(s)
  • Payment of a new application fee

If a new application is submitted with an agent before the existing application(s) are cancelled, the new application will be cancelled. All application fees are non-refundable. Any tuition deposits paid are non-refundable and non-transferable.

5. Removing Agent Authorization

Applicants who would like to stop an agent from accessing their application information and communicating with ACC on their behalf, must complete the Agent Authorization Removal Form and email the completed form to international@assinboine.net.

This does not impact the admission process or enrolment with ACC. Admissions will not send further communications to the agent regarding the progress of the application.

If there are circumstances surrounding a need to remove an agent’s authorization that an applicant wants to discuss with ACC, they should contact Paige Jaenen, International Coordinator at jaenenp@assiniboine.net.

Removing an agent’s authorization will not allow a new agent to be added to the active application.
