Potential disruption to mail service

In the event of a disruption to Canada Post mail service, please note the following alternate accommodations for the submission and receipt of student-related documents and information:


Any documents that are normally mailed (transcripts, confirmation of enrollment letters, confirmation of graduation letters, Senate Appeal results correspondence, and any other general mailing) will be sent as a PDF to the student or the receiving institution by email as per instructions from the student. The emails will be sent to the student’s .webmail.uwinnipeg.ca address. The original document will be held and mailed at a later date.

Students are encouraged to request pick-up documents whenever possible.

Incoming requests can be made via fax and email.
