  • Which post-secondary institutions are partners in eCourses Manitoba?

  • Who can take online courses listed on the eCourses website?

    Anyone can register for the certificate, diploma, or professional learning courses. If you’re not a current student, you may also be eligible to take degree courses. However, you’ll need to apply to the university or college offering the course before you can register.

    Students who are active at any of our partner universities or colleges can take degree courses from our catalogue. If the course is offered by a university or college that isn’t your home, you must take the course on a Letter of Permission. You should talk to an academic advisor if you’re unsure whether a course fits your program of study.

  • I don’t have a home institution. Can I register for a course?

    It depends on the course you wish to take. Certificate, diploma, and professional learning courses are available to anyone. However, ‘degree’ courses are only available to students who are currently studying with one of our seven partners. If you have more questions, get in touch with our Virtual Help Desk for answers.

  • Will I graduate from eCourses?

    No. eCourses Manitoba is not a university or college. It is a service you can use to find online courses offered by our post-secondary partners. Even if the course you choose isn’t offered by your home institution, we can help you register.

  • Is it possible to complete an entire degree or diploma online?

    It depends on what you want to study. Some universities and colleges have programs with that option. If you’re interested in completing a degree, contact the Admissions office at each university to see which of their programs are available online. For a college diploma or certificate, refer to this article at Red River College for a list of online programs. Assiniboine Community College also offers a number of online programs.

    You can also supplement the courses offered at your home institution by transferring online courses from other institutions. Just ask our Virtual Help Desk if you have questions about this process.
