Transfer Students

If you are applying as a transfer student you should review the information on the Office of the Registrar's website concerning the submission of documents, transcripts, and credits for evaluation.

Students applying for transfer from other universities or colleges are subject to Memorial’s Continuance and Readmission regulations. Accordingly, each student’s academic standing at other previous or current institutions must be considered. For this reason, official final transcripts from all other institutions attended must be submitted, regardless of whether transfer of credit is sought or expected.

Applicants who wish to be considered for advanced standing or transfer credit must submit, in addition to the Application for Admission/Readmission, an Application for Transfer Credit Evaluation which can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. Official transcript(s) and calendar descriptions and/or outlines of courses claimed for credit are also required and should be sent directly to Memorial University from the institution attended.

In order to allow sufficient time for evaluation, these documents should be received at least two months prior to the commencement of the registration period for the semester to which the applicant is seeking admission.

Required documents to submit:

  • Interim transcript (official or unofficial) at the time of application if courses are in progress
  • Final transcript (official) as soon as the final grades for courses that are in progress at the time of application are completed
  • Application for transfer credit evaluation
  • If a degree (from another post-secondary institution) has not been awarded, you will also need to submit an official high school transcript.

    * All transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institute.

Further questions regarding the transfer credit evaluation process or the status of a transfer credit evaluation may be directed to the Evaluations Officer in the Office of the Registrar by emailing or phoning (709) 864-4423.
