Accommodation arrangements are your responsibility and should be made directly with a service provider. Please see your Winnipeg Accommodation Guide for information on housing options.

Step 4: Book your flight in advance

Many overseas flights fill quickly for August and December departures. Please ensure that you arrive at least one month prior to your program start date. This will facilitate a smoother transition into a new environment and allow sufficient time for LINKS seminar, and orientation.

Step 6: Tuition payments

Additional tuition payments can be made in advance to the College for visa approval purposes, or before you depart for Canada. Please review the accepted payment methods.

Step 10: Complete the online “International Student Experience” Survey

This survey will help us better understand the needs and experiences of international students upon their arrival to RRC.
