Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements are University of Manitoba Senate approved bilateral or multi-lateral agreements between the University of Manitoba and other recognized post-secondary institutions that define the terms and conditions for consideration of admission and recognition of prior learning within the context of specific programs or credentials.

Upon successful admission, students may receive established credit within a program at the University of Manitoba, which shortens the path to the credential (typically a three-year or four-year degree) that is ultimately sought.

Recognition of prior academic achievement may be in the form of University of Manitoba advance standing or credit recognition, reducing the total credit hours required for credential completion.  This credit would be based on either:

  1. an earned credential (for example a one-year or two-year certificate or diploma), or
     
  2. an approved program of study at the partner institution.

For more information on Articulation Agreements at the University of Manitoba, please refer to the resources below.

New Articulation Agreement Proposal Process

Articulation agreements are approved by Senate. Units proposing a new articulation agreement will need to submit a Senate Articulation Agreement Proposal for review and approval. Please refer to the Articulation Agreement Approval Process web page below for information on the approval process for a new articulation program.  It is highly recommended that units contact the Vice-Provost (Integrated Planning & Academic Programs) to discuss the  proposed  program prior to beginning the approval process.

Articulation Agreement Approval Process and Forms ►

For units proposing an articulation agreement at the international level, please contact the International Centre for additional instructions.

Renewal of Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements are normally renewed through Senate on a 5-year cycle, unless otherwise stipulated in the approved agreement. Units interested in renewing an articulation agreement will need to submit an updated Senate Articulation Agreement Proposal and course-mapping form. They will also be asked to comment on the success of the program to date and any benefits to students and the institution. Please refer to the Articulation Agreement Approval Process page for more information.
