April 20, 2012

North Island College and the University of Manitoba announced Thursday a student mobility agreement providing Canadian Forces members academic credit for their military rank, courses, and training and guaranteed course transfer to uManitoba. The agreement offers access to university transferrable courses from both PSE schools to military members and their spouses based at 19 Wing Comox. NIC has been working closely with 19 Wing to improve PSE access for CF members for several years. In a survey of 457 Wing members and their families on their PSE needs, NIC found that members want degree completion opportunities with the flexibility to accommodate their busy military life.
