Concurrent Studies

Memorial continues to provide high school students with an opportunity to enroll in university courses during the final year of high school through the concurrent studies program.

This is an excellent opportunity for high school students with superior academic records (i.e., an overall average of 85 per cent or above in completed English, math and science courses at the 2000 or 3000 level ) and the availability of space in their schedule to get an early start on courses that will enhance their understanding of the university experience.

To be considered for admission under the concurrent studies category, students must complete an application for Admission to Memorial, pay the appropriate fee, and provide the following supporting documentation:

  • A letter requesting to be considered for enrolment in a specific course
  • Provide a list of final year course registrations
  • An official high school transcript
  • A letter of recommendation from their high school principal or guidance counsellor

Note: Enrolment for concurrent studies students is normally limited to three credit hours (one course) per semester in the Fall or Winter semesters only. Courses may be completed by distance and all general University regulations governing registration and fees apply.
