Section 2: Admission to University 1
2.1 First Year Study in University 1
University 1 is the first 30 credit hours of most University of Manitoba programs, and depending on choice of target faculty, may be completed through either full-time or part-time study. High school graduates, mature students, and transfer students with less than 24 credit hours of post-secondary education are admitted to University 1. Exceptions are students admitted to the School of Art (Studio programs), the Faculty of Music, the School of Agriculture (the Agriculture Diploma program), and students who qualify for direct entry to the Faculty of Engineering. The courses taken in University 1 are introductory university level courses that may qualify students to enter the target faculty of their choice. When students have completed 30 credit hours in University 1 and have a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0, they must transit to the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science or apply to another faculty or school where they complete its program requirements in order to graduate (see Section 3.2 in this chapter for exceptions).
