Undergraduate Spring 2014
- Change to Credit Card Payment Process - Moneris, Memorial's clearing house for credit card payments, charges a 1.95% convenience fee to those who use a MasterCard credit card to make payments on student accounts. As of December 31, 2013, MasterCard is the only credit card accepted for student account payments.
- Student Loans - In place since Fall 2012, important changes to the student loans disbursement process affect all students who have applied and been approved for funding. See the Provincial Department of Advanced Education and Skills Student Aid website for details.
Once your application for financial assistance has been assessed and approved for funding, you will be sent a Notice of Assessment and a Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA). You must complete and mail your MSFAA to the National Student Loan Service Centre (NSLSC) via a designated Canada Post outlet. Once the NSLSC has confirmed receipt of your MSFAA and has received Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment from Memorial, your financial assistance will be deposited to your bank account and/or sent directly to Memorial University to pay tuition fees. This one-time loan agreement is issued for the lifetime of your educational borrowing, provided any break in studies is not more than two years. There will no longer be an in-person pick-up and processing distribution process on campus.
If you do not want your fees deducted from your loan you must pay by one of the other methods by May 2. Please note that if you pay by another method after this date, your tuition will still be deducted from your loan and your other payment will be refunded.Remember, students with outstanding fees after May 12 will be assessed a late payment penalty.
If you are a student at Memorial University receiving a student loan from a province other than Newfoundland and Labrador, you can finalize necessary documents and pick up your loan at the University Centre, UC 4018. Contact Cheryl Peckham, telephone number 709 864 3536 or 709 864 6168. Students from the United States who are interested in applying for U.S. Student Aid should contact Rhonda Byrne, International Student Co-ordinator at 709 864 7910, University Centre, UC 4016.
- Instructions for Students and Procedures for the Conduct of Examinations - Students are required to show their Memorial photo identification cards in order to be permitted to write their final examinations. A student registered in a distance course will be required to present both a Memorial Campus Card ID and a piece of government-issued photo identification to invigilators prior to writing term tests and final examinations. It is the responsibility of the exam invigilator to determine if the likeness between the two pieces of ID is true. A student will not be permitted to write the exam if the invigilator does not find a match between both photos. Distance students can obtain their Campus Cards by following the instructions at www.mun.ca/answers.
Information about instructions and procedures for the conduct of examinations is available here.
