The following are the general admission requirements for Red River College programs. In addition to these requirements, some programs may require you to do additional coursework, take an entrance test or attend an information session.
You should consult the Program and Course Catalogue for more information on the specific requirements for the program you’re applying to.
Regular Admission Requirements
The regular admission requirement for all College programs (excluding upgrading and integrated programs and those programs requiring post-secondary education) is a Manitoba Grade 12 or Mature Student High School Diploma with the necessary program-related course pre-requisites (see specific program admission requirements for details).
Applicants may submit applications upon completion of Grade 11. Applicants must submit a transcript of the completed Grade 11 subjects and confirmation of enrolment in Grade 12 prerequisite subjects. Official final grades must be submitted by July 15 for enrolment in programs that start in fall or by the deadline date specified in the applicant’s letter.
Mature Student Admission Requirements
If you are 19 years of age or older and have been out of high school for a minimum of one year at time of application, and you do not meet the regular admission requirements, you may apply under the mature student admission requirements. Mature student admission may include specific requirements. Refer to the admission requirements for the program you’re applying to for detailed information.
Post-Secondary Entrance Requirements
Applicants must have completed, or where applicable, be enrolled in post-secondary entrance prerequisites at the time of application. Proof of enrolment will be required.
English Language Proficiency Requirements
English is the language of instruction at the College. Applicants to the College are responsible for a level of English proficiency that is sufficient to participate in all aspects of College study, including lectures, practicum placements, reading, writing and discussion.
The College reserves the right to assess English Language Skills, reading ability, and core subject preparation to determine admission eligibility. If you are an internationally educated applicant with education earned outside of Canada or the United States, you’ll need to review additional application information.
