Information for Prospective Students
Advanced Placement
The University of Manitoba recognizes the hard work required for students to be successful in Advanced Placement courses
by offering additional opportunities to those students. There are four areas in which the university will consider Advanced
Placement courses that meet minimum grade requirements:
Admissions Course Requirements
English Language Proficiency
University Credit
It is recommended that students request to have their official mark results submitted to the University of Manitoba
Admissions Office from A.P. if they are considering attending the university. These results are required to be considered for
admission, scholarships, and university credit, but their submission does not commit the student to accept any of the
offerings that may come to them.
1. Admissions Course Requirements
Most students enter the University of Manitoba through a
direct entry program: Art (diploma or degree), Agriculture
(diploma), Engineering, Music, or University 1. The majority
of students begin their studies within University 1 (U1).
Following completion of 24—30 credit hours within U1,
including any specific prerequisite courses that may be
stipulated, students can apply for admission to begin their
second year in the faculty that offers their desired degree.
Students applying to a direct entry program will be
considered for admission based on the course marks on
their high school course transcript including any courses
used to prepare students for A.P. examinations. A.P.
examination results will not generally be considered for
admission to these programs. It is recommended that
students check the specific admission requirements,
selection procedure, and A.P. recognition policy for their
desired program prior to application .
2. English Language Proficiency
If a student’s primary language is not English, they may
be required to demonstrate English language proficiency
to be admitted. Students with a grade of four or greater on
the A.P. English examination will be considered to have
met this requirement.
3. Scholarships
The University of Manitoba’s General Entrance
Scholarship program automatically assesses every direct
entry program applicant for scholarship eligibility. High
school courses taken to prepare for an A.P. examination
will be used in this calculation if the student’s course mark
(as listed on the high school transcript) is one of the
student’s top five eligible courses. This A.P. result will
only be used if its corresponding grade 12 high school
course (i.e. A.P. Biology & Grade 12 Biology) is
considered eligible for scholarship consideration. An A.P.
course and its corresponding Grade 12 high school
course cannot both be used in the calculation of the
scholarship average; only the higher of the two will be
used. English is the only exception because any two
eligible English courses may be used in the scholarship
Students who have qualified for a University of Manitoba
entrance scholarship and who have also achieved top
standing in any Advanced Placement examinations may
receive an additional sum of money added to their
entrance scholarship for each A.P. result of 4 or 5.
Candidates will require:
 nomination for any University of Manitoba
entrance scholarship
 a grade of 5 on any A.P. exam ($250) OR
 a grade of 4 on any A.P. exam ($150)
Official results must be submitted by September 1 for a
student to be eligible. Students can receive scholarship
money even if they do not apply for university credit, but
the marks must still be submitted to the Admissions Office
to be eligible for the scholarship..
4. University Credit
Students may be granted university level credit for select
A.P. results in which they meet the university’s minimum
grade requirement. The minimum A.P. result required is
four; however some courses may require a higher
minimum score as determined by the university
department that offers the awarded credit. The university
credit must be authorized by the school or faculty to which
the student has been admitted as being appropriate for
inclusion in that particular degree or diploma program.
Grades will typically be assigned to the university credit
on the following scale:
A.P. result
3 & less
U of M assigned grade
no credit
* Students who have obtained a grade of 95% in their A.P. high
school work and a result of 5 on the A.P. exam in that same
course will be granted a grade of A+ for the university credit.
There is no limit on the maximum amount of credit that
any one student can be granted for A.P. results1.
Accepting university credit is voluntary and students may
elect to decline the credit.

How to Apply for University Credit
The first step in applying for university
credit is to ensure that an official copy of
A.P. results is forwarded to the university
Admissions Office. Students must also fill
out the Request for University Credit for
Advanced Placement or International
Baccalaureate Results form available at
This form may be submitted to the
Admissions Office anytime after a student
has been accepted, but it is recommended
that students submit it as soon as
possible. When students claim their A.P.
courses, they should verify the regulations
applicable to their faculty/school of interest
with the Admissions Office or the
University 1 Student Help Centre and
should take these regulations into account
when registering for their university
The list of transfer credits is reviewed on a
regular basis and subject to change.
Students with an A.P. examination that
does not appear on this list may request
that the course be reviewed for transfer
