Access Programs

For students struggling with personal, academic and financial issues, university can be daunting. It’s important to know they don’t have to enter this new and challenging environment on their own. With the holistic support of the Access Program, students can build their confidence and pursue their studies in a supportive community. Students can apply to the Access Program now, and attend the University of Manitoba next fall. Preference is given to Indigenous peoples, residents of Northern Manitoba, low-income earners, and newcomers.  

Interested students can apply online at umextended.ca/access, or email accessafp@umanitoba.ca or call 204-474-8800 or 1-800-432-1960 ext. 8000 (toll-free in Manitoba) for more information.
