Start your university career before you finish high school!
Concurrent Studies lets you earn credits from Memorial University in your last year of high school. Now, a new award from the Faculty of Arts lets you earn them for less!
If you are a student in, or about to enter, your final year of high school, and you have an overall average of at least 85% in coursework that meets the requirements for university admission, you can get a head start on your future by taking a first-year university course while still attending high school.
The tuition cost for a single course is $255. The Faculty of Arts is offering $100 awards to high school students who opt to take a social sciences or humanities course offered through the faculty. Ten awards will be given in each semester.
To enrol in a Concurrent Studies course, you will need to:
1. Apply to Memorial by completing the Application for Admission/Readmission form. Your application must be accompanied by a $40 application fee – but once you have been accepted, you won’t need to reapply for next year.
2. Submit a letter from your high school principal or guidance counsellor clearly recommending your admission for Concurrent Studies. Also, include a letter from you requesting enrolment in a specific course.
3. Send these components to: Admissions, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, NL A1C 5S7
To apply for a $100 tuition award from Arts
1. After you have been accepted to Memorial University and approved for Concurrent Studies while still in high school, choose an introductory course offered through one of the Faculty of Arts programs. The Guide to First Year lists first year options.
2. Register for the course using the phone or online registration systems. Registration for Fall 2012 begins July 16. More...
3. Complete this application form and submit it to the address on the form. If you have questions, or cannot access this form, please call 864-8292.
