Receiving credit for university courses
Students coming into Memorial can receive university credit for courses completed while they are still in high school.
These are the types of courses usually available to high school students for credit:
- Concurrent studies

Math placement at Memorial
A student’s success in university mathematics depends on their background and level of mathematics skills.
Eligibility for registration in a first-year mathematics course depends upon the highest level of mathematics completed in high school, the grade earned in that course, and the results achieved in a standardized test such as the MPT.
