Admission Requirements

If your academic history includes any of the following, please visit me.rrc.mb.ca/Catalogue/Information/MyEducation for important information: post-secondary studies at an institution other than Red River College; Modified (M), English as an Additional Language (E), or GED high school courses; or home schooling.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS ARE DUE WITHIN 30 DAYS OF APPLYING (unless otherwise noted below).

This is a special selection program. Your portfolio will be evaluated and assigned a score that reflects your potential for success in the program. If your portfolio score is within acceptable range you will be invited to attend a mandatory information session. If your portfolio score does not fall within the acceptable range, your application will be cancelled.

Offers of admittance will be made to qualified applicants based on portfolio scores in descending order until all available seats are filled. This means not all applicants whose portfolios scores fall within acceptable range and who attended the mandatory information session will be offered a seat.

Applicants not offered a seat may reapply for a future intake by submitting a new application, application fee, and new portfolio based on the portfolio specifications for that application year.

Annual application deadline: February 28
