3.2 Procedure for Admission
  1. Application for admission to graduate studies must be made online to the School of Graduate Studies at www.mun.ca/become/graduate/apply/. The application must be supported by an official transcript of the applicant's university record. If the applicant is a graduate of another university or college, a copy of the Calendar of that institution must be included upon request.

    Most graduate programs have September start dates; however, some programs accept students for January and/or May admission. Deadlines for submission of applications can be as early as November for the following September; therefore, applicants should inquire about program start dates and application deadlines of the academic program of interest (see www.mun.ca/become/graduate). Non-Canadian applicants should allow four to six months for processing of official documents with Immigration authorities.

  2. Admission to graduate studies shall be upon acceptance by the Dean after assessment of the qualifications of the applicant but no candidate will be admitted unless the academic unit of specialization recommends acceptance along with a proposed program of study and a proposed Supervisor or advisor or, where appropriate, a tutor. Successful applicants will be notified by the Dean of Graduate Studies.

  3. The applicant may be required to appear for an interview before a final offer of admission is made.

  4. It is recommended that the applicant refer to the appropriate section of this Calendar to ascertain if additional testing information or documentation is required when making initial application.

  5. The University reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant.
