•
Established 1877; first university in western Canada
Fall term 2011 enrolment: 27,992 students
24,236 undergraduate and 3,211 graduate
2,638 international (9.4 percent of total)
Over 100 academic programs
Over 200 summer research jobs for undergrads
183 exchange programs in 33 countries
95 Rhodes Scholars
How UM evaluates transfer credit 1/5
• Transfer credit evaluation for undergraduate programs is part
of the admission process
• Assessment before a formal admission application can often
be accommodated
• Students are asked to provide detailed course material issued
by their prior institution for any course lacking a current
evaluation
How UM evaluates transfer credit 2/5
• Credit hours are assigned based on official transcript
information, or review of academic year and associated
course contact hours
• Course material is forwarded to the applicable academic
teaching unit for consideration on a course-by-course basis
• Course assessments are loaded in the evaluations area to the
student record and maintained in our SIS database
How UM evaluates transfer credit 3/5
Course evaluations may be assigned one of the following:
• Assigned credit: credit granted for a specific course—e.g.,
PSYC 1200 Introduction to Psychology (6)
• Assigned credit with a reduced number of credit hours: e.g.,
PSYC 1200 Introduction to Psychology (3)
• General (unallocated) credit: BIOL 1XXX TRANSFER 1000
LVL (3)—3 credit hours of 1000-level Biology credit
• No credit: STAT 9999 NO CREDIT (0)—course has been
deemed “no credit” by applicable teaching unit
How UM evaluates transfer credit 4/5
• Course assessments are valid for five years before reevaluation is required
• Transfer credit policies vary among programs (e.g., some
faculties may only consider courses completed within the last
ten—or fewer—years)
• A similar assessment process is maintained by the Registrar's
Office for outgoing ‘letter of permission’ and ‘exchange’
students
• All active assessments awarded credit may be viewed at
www.umanitoba.ca/admissions/tc
How UM evaluates transfer credit 5/5
• Earned grades (Canadian and international) are included on
the student record and used in academic standing regulations
for most faculties
• Established grade tables are consulted, as needed
UM transfer credit by the numbers;
from fall term 2006 to the present
• 36,140 course evaluations completed; more than 6,000 each
year
• 28,412 of these are currently active
• 19,111 have been awarded undergraduate degree level
credit; more than 3,000 each year
• TCEs have been completed for over 90 countries outside

About two single-term courses per student (1.96, on average)
‘Incoming’ Students Studying
on a Letter of Permission
• 554 students (five-year average)
• Most of these are admitted to General Studies, so area of
study hard to determine

Inter-Universities Services (IUS) 1/2
• Mandate: “to deliver university credit courses to residents
living north of the 53rd parallel”
• Consortium of four MB universities—BU, UM, UW, UCN
• UCN handles administration; community volunteers provide
support
• IUS ensures the transferability of courses that are offered
Inter-Universities Services (IUS) 2/2
• Students pick a home university from among consortium
members
• Students select from courses taught in their home community
or by distance
• Residency requirements are waived (or considered met) by
home university
Campus Manitoba 1/4
• “Designed to facilitate access to post-secondary education within the
province of Manitoba. Campus Manitoba helps remove the potential
barriers of time, geographical location, and to some extent, the
cost.”
• “CMB reduces barriers to post-secondary education by coordinating
the registration of students and the delivery of certificate, diploma
and degree courses/programs offered by the participating
universities and colleges.”
• Campus Manitoba (CMB) is a consortium of Manitoba's publicly
funded universities and colleges.
• Funded by the MB Council on Post-Secondary Education (COPSE)
Campus Manitoba 2/4
• CMB centres are located in various communities across Manitoba.
• CMB coordinators provide academic and logistical support for
students enrolled in Campus Manitoba.
• CMB courses are delivered in two basic formats: live and online.
• "Live" lectures are delivered on a predetermined schedule using
either iLinc or elluminate, real-time virtual classrooms that enable
instructors to deliver live courseware to students and receive
feedback via the internet.
• "Online" classes are generally accessed using net-based interfaces
called Angel, Moodle and WebCT. Lectures are provided online, and
can be supplemented by a combination of CDs, videos, printed
manuals and posted information. Communication with instructors or
other students takes place by email, bulletin boards and at times by
phone.
Campus Manitoba 3/4
• Q: What is a "home institution"?
• A: Despite the virtually seamless transfer of credits, Campus
Manitoba students must choose a "home institution".
• That institution will evaluate and approve your admission
application, hold all your earned credits, and will be the institution
from which you expect to graduate.
• Your transcripts will be issued by your "home institution".
• At the end of your studies, students graduate from their home
university or home college ("home institution"), not from Campus
Manitoba.
• Quoted from http://www.campusmanitoba.com/
Campus Manitoba 4/4
• Q: Are course credits fully transferrable between "home
institutions"?
• A: All CMB university courses have "course credit equivalency".
• If you want to transfer credit from university to college or from
college to university, you will need to contact your home institution
and talk to a student advisor. In almost all cases, credit transfers are
possible.
• For example: If you completed a two year Business Administration
diploma at Assiniboine Community College (ACC) or Red River
College (RRC), you would receive full credit for those courses, if you
enrolled in a university business administration degree program.

Prior Learning Assessment (PLAR)
An example of PLAR: Certificate in Adult and Continuing Education
(CACE)
Relevant learning gained outside of the CACE Program may be eligible for credit towards the
certificate to a maximum of 125 hours of credit. Recognition of prior learning may occur in several
ways:
•
•
•
Exemptions/Transfer of Credit
Exemptions may be granted against CACE courses for equivalent courses successfully completed
and evaluated at recognized institutions. There is a $75 non-refundable fee for each exemption
request for courses taken outside of the University of Manitoba and no fee for courses completed
at the UM.
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)
Recognition of prior learning for credit in the CACE Program may be obtained by submission of
evidence of verifiable learning. To be eligible for credit in CACE, learning must be both relevant
and equivalent to the content of the CACE Program and be at a university level. The PLA
assessment fee is $365. PLA is only an option at the start of the program.
Credit for Seminar Study
This is an option for those already enrolled in the CACE Program who would like CACE elective
credit for a seminar or workshop taken outside of the Program. Approval for seminar credit
must be arranged in advance of the seminar. (A statement of learning outcomes, proof of
attendance and written assignment are required. The administrative fee for seminar credit is $125
for 20 hours or less and $200 for over 20 hours of credit to a maximum of 40 hours.)
Bachelor of Arts Integrated Studies 1/2
• The Bachelor of Arts Integrated Studies (BAIS) is a new degree
program offered by the Faculty of Arts
• BAIS is for working adults who have completed some postsecondary education and would like to complete an undergraduate
degree; Extended Education helped with program development.
• The BAIS requires concentrations of study rather than the traditional
major/minor approach. These areas of concentration and elective
components allow more flexibility in course selection based on
interests and needs
• The program is 90 credit hours divided into three components:
– 21 credit hours of Foundation courses
– 18 credit hours of an area of Concentration
– 51 credit hours of elective courses
BAIS: Admission and TCE 2/2
• The Faculty will consider the completed certificate or diploma
programs (listed below) or 24 credit hours of university level course
work as the basis of admission even if courses were completed
more than 10 years ago
• Courses completed at community or junior colleges may also be
used as basis for admission and possible transfer credit
• Subject to admission and transfer credit conditions, students could
expect to receive credit in the four certificate programs as follows:
–
–
–
–
UM Cert. in Human Resource Management (HRM): 24 credit hours
UM Cert. in Adult and Continuing Education (CACE): 18 credit hours
UM Cert. in Financial and Management Accounting (FMA): 27 cr. hrs.
Canadian Institute of Management Certificate Program in Management and
Administration (C.I.M.): 24 credit hours

• Internationally Educated Teachers (IET); Internationally
Educated Agrologists Pilot (IEAP) Program
International College of Manitoba
• ICM offers a pathway to an undergraduate degree at the University
of Manitoba.
• The UTPII programs are the equivalent to the first year of the
University's Bachelor Degree; upon successful completion of UTPII,
students transfer into the second year of their degree at the
University of Manitoba.
• To progress to the second year at the University of Manitoba
students must successfully complete 30 credit hours of advanced
standing, meet minimum GPA requirements, and satisfy other
relevant entry requirements.
