How IUS Works
The best interests of learners, communities, and organizations help create each Inter-Universities Services academic plan. Part-time and full-time students can take courses for professional development. Then, on-site instructors are brought into the community.
Choose a Manitoba College for Your Desired Learning Program
Which academic instruction your certificate, diploma, or degree will come from is up to you. You can choose from any of the participating colleges as your home university:
University College of the North
University of Manitoba
University of Winnipeg
Picking Your Home University
The following are some factors to consider when deciding on a home university:
Your ability to meet the school's entrance requirements
The availability of the degree program that you want
Where you might choose to go to summer school, if necessary
University policies on completing many of your courses through independent study, if desired
Please note that you must still follow the academic requirements of your home university while partaking in IUS.
Changing Your Home University
Your decision on a home university during your first registration is not necessarily a final one. You can still transfer to another participating institution after your first 24 credit hours or four full courses.
Focusing on Sustaining Solid Partnerships
UCN forms articulation agreements, also known as formal partnerships between two or more higher education institutions, to help create students experience a seamless transfer from community college to our college. By doing so, we can maximize the mobility, portability, and transferability of a learner’s education.
We currently have a variety of accreditation and articulation agreements in place. These partnerships cover education programs under CPA, Commerce, Management, Business Administration, Certified Financial Aboriginal Management, Environmental Science, and Environmental Management.
