Faculty of Business Administration (2008/2009)
6 Regulations for the General Degree of Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative)
6.1 Admission Modes and Requirements
6.1.1 Direct Entry (for High School Students)

Students may apply for admission into first year of the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) program (Terms A/B) directly from high school by indicating this in the appropriate place on their Undergraduate Application for Admission/Readmission to Memorial University of Newfoundland. Direct entry from high school is subject to the applicant's final acceptance to the University and admissibility into either Mathematics 1000 or 1090. Terms A/B normally starts in September.

6.1.2 Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students)
  1. Students may apply for admission with Advanced Standing into terms beyond Terms A/B up to and including Term 4. Students applying for admission to a term beyond Terms A/B must have completed all of the courses required in the program up to that term, including the courses required in Terms A/B, with grades high enough to have met promotion requirements. Students applying for admission with advanced standing must complete and submit to the Office of the Registrar the Application For Admission to the Faculty of Business Administration, normally on or before the deadlines specified in the University Diary for the semester in which they intend to begin their program.

  2. Admission with Advanced Standing is competitive and selective. Prospective students are therefore encouraged to consider an alternate degree program in the event that they are not accepted into the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) program.

  3. The primary criterion used in reaching decisions on applications for admission with advanced standing is overall academic achievement. Selection, therefore, will be based on a student's overall academic performance. Students with weak overall academic records are unlikely to be admitted.

6.1.3 Transfers From Other Post-Secondary Institutions
  1. Students who are transferring from other universities must apply for admission to the University on or before the deadlines specified in the University Diary for the semester in which they intend to begin their program, to allow sufficient time for the evaluation of transfer credits. Subject to items 2. and 3. under Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students) above, transfer students from other universities will be placed in that Term of the program judged by the Admissions Committee of the Faculty to be appropriate considering equivalent credits. Regardless of the Term into which they are admitted, transfer students must complete a minimum of two work terms.

  2. Subject to items 2. and 3. under Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students) above, graduates of a three-year community college business diploma program may be considered for admission into Term 3. Space for Term 3 admissions is limited and competitive and admission decisions will be based on overall academic performance. Specific course requirements will be determined on an individual basis at the time of admission.
