The Assessment Center offers invigilation to University College of the North (UCN) students with accommodations and current UCN students enrolled in programs full-time or part-time are qualified to have the external test invigilation cost waived for exams taken at the Assessment Center. This also applies to current UCN students pursuing courses from other institutions. Please keep in mind that this only applies throughout the program. Alumni and applicants are not qualified for the waived charge. A student must show their current UCN student card on the day of their test to be eligible for the waived charge.
The Assessment Centre offers testing services to numerous schools, institutions, and professional organizations in a safe and controlled setting. It facilitates testing for both individuals and groups online, computer, or paper format. You can make an appointment to write a test at the Assessment Center by filling out the Invigilation Request Form. The form must be filled out entirely including details of exam date and time, and detailed invigilation instructions including the contact information for the person who is sending the exam to the Assessment Center before forwarding it to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. There is a fee of $52.50 (per individual, per test) that must be paid before writing the test.
We currently invigilate for Manitoba Conservation, Office of the Fire Commission, Manitoba Real Estate Association (MREA), The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC), Insurance Brokers Association of Manitoba (IBAM), General Educational Development Test (GED), and Athabasca University. If your requested invigilation is other than mentioned organizations or university/college , please contact Assessment Center by emailing email@example.com to make arrangements.
Applicants who have a post-secondary educational background and would like to consider the option of getting their credits transferred from UCN programs they have taken in the past or from external institutions within Canada can book an appointment with their Academic Advisor to start the process of transferring credit (For single course, block) by filling out the Transfer Credit Request Form. The request form signed by the Academic Advisor as well as the student along with your transcripts (if not yet provided) and course descriptions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to evaluate transfer credit. Each course requested for transfer is evaluated by the relevant faculty and given a UCN equivalent, if one is available. In some circumstances, general (unallocated) credit may be given if an equivalent cannot be found.
Note: Transfer Credit Requests can be denied due to various reasons including but not limited to coursework taken within the last ten years.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Adults are continually gaining knowledge and skills from the life experiences in which they are involved. A student may be able to receive UCN credit for previous skills and knowledge and apply this credit to programs at the University College of the North. The process of matching previous skills and knowledge to university- or college-level courses is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). UCN uses a variety of methods such as exams or tests, assignments or projects, skill demonstrations, and portfolio assessments to verify a student’s prior learning. RPL decisions are made by the program faculty in consultation with the Recognition of Prior Learning Facilitator and Academic Dean, and in accordance with the UCN’s RPL policy. Up to 75% of a program’s credit hours may be obtained through the RPL process. The fees schedule can be found at https://ucn.ca/registrars-office/
