General Admission Requirements

Would you like to study at Université de Saint-Boniface? The first step is to submit an application for admission. After your admission is officially confirmed, you will be able to register for courses. 

Anyone who is admitted to USB for the first time must take the profil linguistique placement test prior to registration. This consists of an online grammar exercise that will direct you to the first-year French course that best meets your needs. THIS IS NOT AN ADMISSION TEST! 

USB General Admission Requirements

The general admission requirements vary depending on where you are from. While these minimum requirements must be met to be eligible, it does not guarantee admission. You must also meet the admission requirements for your chosen program. Please see the Academic Calendar for the admission requirements of each of our programs.

English Proficiency

Certain programs (Health Care Aide Certificate, Early Childhood Education Diploma, Practical Nursing Diploma, Bachelor of Nursing, and Bachelor of Social Work) have admission requirements regarding English proficiency. In such cases, if you have not passed an equivalent to English 40S or English 42U in a Manitoban secondary school, USB will require standardized English test results to determine whether you are eligible for your chosen program. See the list of standardized English tests accepted by USB and the minimum results required for each of the programs in question.

Please note that we only accept the original document (less than 2 years old) indicating the standardized English test results. Photocopied or scanned documents will not be accepted.
