Applicants to the Diploma in Information and Communications Technology normally must have successfully completed a three-year diploma or degree from an accredited post-secondary institution and attained a minimum of 65% on the last 15 courses completed. Admission to the program is limited and competitive. Application to the program must be made in writing to the Division of Lifelong Learning on the appropriate form, and must include an official transcript of post-secondary marks. Applications must be submitted by June 1 for Fall semester, October 1 for Winter semester, and February 1 for Spring semester. Applications received after these deadlines will be considered only if a place is available. In addition, students who have not registered for courses at Memorial University of Newfoundland for either of the two immediately preceding semesters must also complete an application for admission/readmission to the University.
Selection of candidates will be based on academic performance and on other criteria considered suitable for an information technology professional, including but not limited to evidence of the ability to cope with a demanding schedule or demonstrated mathematical ability.
Candidates pursuing Option 2. will be required to have at least one year of full-time work experience or equivalent.
