Financial Assistance

To make it easier for your visit to CMU, we offer financial assistance to prospective students traveling from a distance—whether you are coming for a Campus Visit Day or for an individual visit.

We pay up to $400 of your total travel cost to Winnipeg if you travel by plane, bus or train ($500 CDN if from the USA). Half of the total cost is paid at the time of your visit (up to $200) and up to $200 of your remainder fare is put into your student account here at CMU to be applied against tuition costs. Although we welcome and encourage your parent(s) to join you in coming to visit, we do not reimburse any costs for a parent's travel.

If you use AirMiles or other loyalty programs to pay for flights, the "up to $400" is only calculated using the amount of cash you actually paid. We do not reimburse according to the value of the ticket in these cases.

If you live more than 150 km outside of Winnipeg and drive here, we'll reimburse you for gas at 20 cents/km up to the same limit of $400 (up to $200 when you visit and up to $200 when you become a student).

While you're on campus, meals and on campus accommodation will be covered. You can also stay in residence the evening before your Campus Visit Day. Please speak to an admissions counsellor regarding the maximum number of meals and nights you may stay at no cost. Parents are included in this the accommodation and meals coverage!To qualify for a travel subsidy, your visit must be pre-arranged with the CMU Admissions Department. Contact the Admissions Department at or by completing the online registration form above. You can also call us toll-free at 1.877.231.4570.
