How can I prepare for Enrolment?

Below is a helpful checklist to help you prepare for enrolment day!

  • I logged in to my ICM Student Portal
  • I checked my Letter of Offer and cleared any outstanding conditions
  • I completed my Math Placement Test (only if applicable)
  • I reviewed the pre-requisites for my UTP Stage II courses
  • I have reviewed the Enrolment Guide found in the Student Portal to see course availability for my term (available soon).
  • I downloaded and read the First Term Course Selection Guide for my term and I read the tips on the How to Enrol page
  • I am aware of the upcoming important dates and deadlines

When should I arrive for the September (Fall) 2023 term?

Students are recommended to plan their travel during a scheduled break between terms or before their program start date to ensure their studies are not impacted.

New students are recommended to arrive in Winnipeg in late August before Orientation happening August 31, or if this is not possible, they must arrive before classes begin on September 5, 2023.

It’s also advisable to coordinate your arrival with the move-in date for your accommodations or plan to stay in a hotel until you can move into your accommodations.

If you will arrive before August 25, new students are strongly encouraged to purchase extended medical coverage for early arrival (for example, Guard.Me). Our team of Student Success Advisors are available online using the links in your Student Portal to further discuss your arrival questions one-on-one.

You will arrive at the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (YWG). You must make arrangements with family, friends, your homestay family, book private airport pickup, or take a taxi or ride share from the airport. 
If you wish to book private airport pickup and have someone waiting for you at baggage claim when you arrive, we recommend Winnipeg Limo. You can download an airport pickup form and send it directly to Winnipeg Limo by email.

It is important to know the name, phone number, address, and hours of operation for your booked accommodations and have the information typed and printed. Your expected arrival time should also be communicated with your accommodation provider in advance, and late-night arrival instructions should be confirmed prior to departure. In some cases, students arriving late at night may need to stay in a hotel overnight before moving into their accommodations. 

I’m a new student. What happens to my fees if I enrol in courses and my visa is later refused?

New students do not need to have a confirmed visa in order to enrol in their first term courses in the Fall term. Students should plan to apply for their visa as soon as possible, as processing times can vary.

If a student visa is later refused and they are unable to travel to Winnipeg for their classes, the refund request would be based on the refund policy for current students - meaning they would likely be charged for the courses that they are enrolled in, even if their visa is refused and they no longer decide to come to Canada. Please see our Fee Refund Policy.

A student must voluntarily withdrawal, or VW, from their courses and request to defer before September 25, 2023 if they do not want to be charged for the courses they enroled in.

If a new student is worried about a visa refusal and they do not want to risk paying for courses at ICM if they cannot join ICM, then they may wish to request to defer to our next intake. Please contact our team at info@icmanitoba.ca if you are looking for information about deferring.
