How can I prepare for my registration?
- Memorial University of Newfoundland offers online registration through Self Service.
- You will need a user ID (your student number) and a personal identification number (PIN).
- The PIN for students registering for the first time is birth year and day. For example, a birth year of 1995 and a birth day of the fifth of any month will mean a PIN of 199505. Once entered you must then create your own PIN. Every time you access the registration system from then on (until you are required to complete an application for readmission) the new PIN must be used. You will be the only one who knows your PIN; therefore, do not forget the number you create.
- You will also be required to create a security question and answer at that time. Please choose your question and answer carefully as it will be required if you were to forget your newly created pin.
- Please review the Guide to Memorial Self-Service presentation on line at www.mun.ca/advice. This presentation provides step-by-step instructions to help you understand the registration process.
What do I register for?
- You should register for the courses that were recommended during your high school advising session. If you did not meet with an academic advisor and would like help with course selection please contact the Academic Advising Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students attending Grenfell Campus should contact the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com.
- Draft a number of sample timetables before attempting to register, as you may not get your first choice.
- You should also create a class schedule that has no clashes (i.e., more than one class or lab at the same time). You will be informed of a clash in your schedule, but you will not be prevented from keeping courses that have a timetable clash
- Some course sections have the lecture combined with the lab, meaning, when you register for the lecture you will automatically be registered in the lab associated with that section. Other course sections may not have the lecture and lab combined; in this case you would need to register for the lecture and lab separately.
- Remember to register for Orientation (ORTN 1000). To register for the fall semester orientation, search for Orientation in the subject area, and 1000 as the subject. Add Orientation to your schedule. [Further information about Orientation].
- If you have not already written the Math Placement Test (MPT), you will need to register for it before you are able to add a mathematics course. To register for the fall semester writing of the MPT, search for Mathematics in the subject area, and 1MPT as the subject. Add the MPT to your schedule. More information regarding the Math Placement Test is available on the following pages.
When do I need to register?
- Registration for the fall semester begins July 16.
- To view your registration time, access Self Service at www.mun.ca, select "Registration", select the correct term (2013-2014 Fall) and your registration time will be shown. This information should be available by approximately the middle of June. Your assigned registration time is the earliest that you may register.
- New students who have received early offers of scholarships from Memorial University of Newfoundland will register first. For all other new students registration priority is based on a schedule arranged in accordance with the first three letters of your last name.
- You should register on your assigned date and time or as soon as possible thereafter. This will ensure that you will have the best selection of available courses.
What if I am unable to register for a particular course?
- Check to see if there is a prerequisite or co-requisite for the course.
- Check to see if the course is reserved for students in a particular program.
- Check to see if you have registered for the MPT.
- You may also need to add your mathematics course before the system will let you add other courses, such as physics and chemistry.
What are wait-lists?
- A waitlist is sometimes created for courses that reserve registration for a particular group of students for a limited period of time.
- Memorial Self-Service will allow you to be registered and waitlisted in a maximum of seven course sections. When you become registered for five courses, all the waitlisted courses you currently hold will become inactive. However, if you drop a course, your waitlists will be reactivated. Placing yourself on a waitlist allows you to reserve a place in line for a seat in the course once the reserves are lifted.
- If you are on a waitlist, check course registrations periodically by accessing Memorial Self-Service. You may become registered in the course if space becomes available; however, you will not be notified until you are sent your enrolment verification in late August.
- It is strongly recommended that you not waitlist for courses when there are open sections of the same course available. If you become registered in one course section, other waitlisted sections of that course will be dropped.
What do I do if I am having problems with my registration?
- If you experience problems with registering and need assistance, students attending the St. John's campus can contact the Office of the Registrar at 709 864 4445 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Students attending Grenfell Campus should contact the Office of the Registrar at 709 637 6298 or (toll-free) 1 866 381 7022 or email email@example.com.
- Access Memorial Self-Service as many times as necessary. If you are experiencing difficulty, end the session, review you material and try again.
Can I make changes to my registration?
- Before dropping a course make sure that is what you want to do because you may be unable to add it to your schedule again should another student register for the available space.
- If you drop a course that is the co-requisite of another course in your schedule, the other course will also be dropped.
- If you make changes to your schedule, you should confirm that the appropriate changes have been made by reviewing your course registration.
- If you have concerns about changing your schedule, it is wise to seek advice from an academic advisor.
Where can I find additional information?
- Instructions are included in the Undergraduate Registration Procedures which will be available online by the end of June.
- While in Self Service look for the Front Counter Assistant icon. It provides step-by- step instruction for common tasks including, dropping and adding courses, reserves, waitlists, etc....
Note: The Establishing Student Relationships Program will be in contact with you before your registration time, either by email or telephone to offer assistance.
