Academic Supports

Academic Advising

Academic Advisors in all Faculties and in the University 1 First Year Centre are still available for students. You can find information about how to contact an academic advisor here: umanitoba.ca/academic-advisors.

Students are encouraged to discuss academic decisions with an advisor in their home faculty or in the University 1 First Year Centre. If you are unsure about how the recent labour disruption may impact this, or any future terms, it is important that you meet with an advisor as soon as possible.

Additionally, if there are questions about conflicts resulting from the change to the Fall Term Final Exam schedule, or modified Winter Term schedule, please see an academic advisor in your home faculty as soon as possible.

If you are an incoming student and have questions about course selection for the Winter term, please see the First Year Planning Guide and Online Registration Tutorials. We encourage students to complete registration to the best of their ability, including being added to waitlists, before contacting an advisor.

Wait times for in person meetings in January may vary with increased demand for consultation, so completing registration for Winter term early is important.

Academic Learning Centre


International Centre

541 University Centre, 204-474-8501

International students concerned about how the labour disruption may affect them and their stay in Canada are encouraged to make an appointment at the International Centre.

International students can discuss such topics as travel plans, withdrawing from a course and its implications on your stay here in Canada, how to discuss accommodation requests with your professors, how the strike may affect your plans to graduate and future employment prospects. Our advisors can provide you with the information and referrals you need. They can also provide guidance on immigration regulations as they relate to your studies in Canada, Study Permit extensions and changes, Temporary Resident Visa applications, and more.

Students may book an appointment to meet with an advisor at a specific time or you can come during 'drop-in' times to see an advisor without making an appointment in advance. To book an appointment or confirm drop-in times, please contact the International Centre.
