Please take time to speak to your guidance counsellor regarding graduation. If you have questions or concerns about requirements for graduation or for post-secondary, they can help!

Note: Entrance requirements for universities and colleges are institution specific, which make it important to visit their websites to understand details/differences and plan accordingly. The points below are generalized suggestions to help the majority of our students meet entrance requirements:

  1. Manitoba graduation requirement and university entrance requirements are not the same thing.
  2. Most Manitoba universities require 5 full credits at the S (special), or G (general) level for entrance, which means Phys Ed does NOT count towards many university entrance requirements as it is an "F" credit (Physical Education 40F - foundational), therefore students should plan to graduate with a minimum of 6 grade 12 credits. Our NPC registration guide and student schedules will show each course's designation, and the meaning can be found on page two of our guide.
  3. Some institutions require a variety of subject areas at the grade 12 level, and have an "approved list" of courses. For some institutions this list is very specific.
  4. Scholarships/bursaries often have a separate set of requirements, which can be course secific and differ from entrance requirements.

A list of institution application deadlines is available here.
