Depending on your high school Math courses, grades and your intended program of study at Memorial, you may need to write the Math Placement Test or the Calculus Placement Test. The Course Criteria Chart for Mathematics will help you determine if you need to write the MPT or CPT. The MPT is designed to assess your basic mathematics skills with the intention of ensuring that you register for the Mathematics course that is best suited for you. The CPT is an examination of a student’s knowledge of differential calculus. A sample test for both the MPT and CPT can be found on the Department of Mathematics and Statistics website.

For out of province students and international students, you should register for the MPT or CPT examination along with your other courses by first adding the course Mathematics 1MPT or Mathematics 1CPT. Once you register for the MPT or CPT you are able to register for your desired math course.

If you do not obtain the appropriate mark on the MPT or the CPT, an Academic Advisor can assist you with deciding which courses you should take. You can contact an academic advisor by emailing or calling (709) 864-8801.

Registered Educational Savings Plan (RESP) agencies and Educational Scholarship Trust Fund companies may require that a student submit completed forms to confirm a student’s full-time attendance, duration of degree program, and year of study.

The Office of the Registrar does not complete the form(s) provided by the RESP agency or Educational Scholarship Trust Fund company. Instead, a student may request an enrolment verification letter. The enrolment verification letter includes the required information and is accepted by the RESP agencies and Educational Scholarship Trust Fund companies in lieu of the enrolment verification section of the form(s). The enrolment verification letter is requested by the student (beneficiary) for submission directly to the agency or company.

You should request your enrolment verification letter through Memorial Self-Service after you have registered as a full-time student in a minimum of nine credit hours for the semester. The enrolment verification letter can be provided to you in pdf format by email or in hard copy paper format that can be sent by standard mail, sent by fax or picked up by you with your MUN ID at the Office of the Registrar's General Office, A 2003. When you receive the enrolment verification form, you should submit it to your RESP agency or Educational Scholarship Trust Fund company.

Remember to register as soon as your registration window opens and to request your enrolment verification letter as soon as you have registered. This will ensure that you receive a prompt response by the Office of the Registrar and that you meet the deadline of your RESP agency or Educational Scholarship Trust company.

If you wish to authorize a parent or another third party to discuss with us your RESP or Educational Scholarship Trust Fund, an information release form is available to be submitted to from your email account or brought to the Registrar’s General Office, A 2003.

Inquiries may be directed to or (709) 864 8260 or by fax (709) 864-2337.

We hope to see you at Memorial soon!
