If you have registered in any of the last three semesters, your PIN will remain as you have created it. However, students who have not previously registered using the Web or telephone system, or who were required to complete an Application for Readmission to the Winter Semester, will have an initial PIN determined by their birth year and day. For example, a student born on the 16th day of any month in 1992 will have an initial PIN of 199216. Upon accessing the system and entering this initial PIN, a new PIN must be chosen. This new PIN will replace your original birth year and birth day PIN and therefore cannot be the same number. Every time you access the registration system from then on (until you are required to complete an application for readmission) the new PIN must be used. You will be the only one who knows your PIN; therefore, do not forget the number you create.
Your PIN protects you from unauthorized access to your academic record. Therefore, you are strongly advised not to divulge your student number and PIN. If you give any person your PIN, you are taking responsibility for any changes made. If you have reason to believe that an unauthorized person has your PIN, or if you have forgotten your number, contact the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 709 864 4445.
Changes should be made using Memorial Self-Service or by submitting the Change of Address(es) Form available from the Office of the Registrar.
If you wish to alter your original registration for any reason, you must go through the drop and add process. Changes in registration are not official unless you use the drop and add process. If you wish to change courses after registering but before the add deadline, use Memorial Self-Service. In those cases where the system will not let you add or drop, it will be necessary for you to use a course change form. Course Change Forms and Cancellation of Registration Forms, which contain instructions for completion, are available at the Office of the Registrar, and the Academic Advising Centre in St. John's and the Office of the Registrar at Grenfell campus. The Course Change Form is also downloadable as a pdf file here. The form is valid only if properly stamped or signed by the Registrar’s Office.
Most courses may be dropped using Memorial Self-Service up to the deadline to drop courses without academic prejudice, February 24.
The university will not, as a matter of routine, drop courses for you. If you remain registered in courses you do not intend to complete you are effectively preventing another student, who may need the courses to graduate, from registering. Please, in consideration of your fellow students, drop as early as possible those courses which you do not plan to complete.
Moreover, students who have registered for courses, but who decide not to attend Memorial University will incur financial and academic penalties for those courses unless they are officially dropped before the deadlines.
For courses added on January 6 or later, tuition must be paid within 48 hours or a late payment penalty will be assessed.
For courses dropped after the start of classes, tuition will be refunded on a prorated basis according to the schedule below.
|January 6 to 20||100%|
|January 21 to 27||50%|
|January 28 to February 3||25%|
|after February 3||0%|
In the case of special sessions, accelerated courses and courses offered outside the normal time-frame of a semester or session, deadlines for withdrawing from the university without academic prejudice and financial liability will be prorated accordingly.
