Categories of Admission
Your education at The Collegiate will help you discover your passion, find your voice, and set you on a path to achieve. We admit students in four different categories, which you can read more about below. For more information on the application and registration process for all categories except Concurrent Status, please see the steps outlined in Applying to the Collegiate.
Please note that students studying in the Ballet Academic Program of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet apply through the RWB.
Regular Status students enter into Grades 9 through 12 and generally study full-time. Because of limited enrollment in Grades 9 and 10, students are required to complete an interview with a Collegiate Dean. These applicants will be contacted by phone once the complete application has been received.
Regular students may be eligible to take first year courses at The University of Winnipeg for dual credit towards high school graduation and a university degree. To be eligible, high school students must have earned at least 22 credits in three calendar years or less, and completed at least one credit at the Grade 12 level.
There are two types of Visiting Status students:
- A student who is enrolled in anther high school may attend The Collegiate as a Visiting Status Student. Once courses are completed, the credit(s) will be transferred back to the home school. The application form must be signed by the principal, vice-principal or counselor from the student’s home school.
- A student who is taking an isolated course or courses and does not intend to seek graduation, may also apply as a Visiting Status student. A high school transcript and/or proof of graduation must also be submitted with the application.
Visiting students are not required to pay the non-refundable $100.00 application fee.
To be admitted as a Mature Status student, the applicant must be 19 years of age before the expected date of graduation. Mature Status students will be required to complete a minimum of eight credits, although this number may be reduced if the student has previously completed high school credits, a G.E.D., or provides proof of Adult Basic Education.
Normally, in order to be admitted to Grade 12 on Mature Status, a student should have Grade 10 standing or the equivalent. Applicants registering as Mature Status students may be asked to complete an assessment to determine the most appropriate program of studies.
A student who has completed his/her normal Grade 12 year but needs one to three high school credits to meet regular university entrance requirements may be considered for Concurrent Status. A Concurrent Status student will register for the high school credits at The Collegiate through The University of Winnipeg. Registration at another high school or through Independent Study is not permitted. Concurrent Status students apply directly to The University of Winnipeg.
