  • Dr. Florentine Strzelczyk, provost and vice-president (academic), has announced Memorial’s vaccine declaration form is now open for faculty, staff and students as a follow up to the vaccine mandate announced on Aug. 20, 2021. Students, faculty and staff will require the first dose of an approved vaccination by Sept. 7, 2021, and the second dose by Oct. 15, 2021, unless granted an accommodation. Anyone who has not yet completed the declaration form should do so as soon as possible.

    More information on Dr. Strzelczyk’s announcement can be found here. A link to the form can be found on the my.mun.ca portal.

  • Students, faculty and staff will require the first dose of an approved vaccination by Sept. 7, 2021, and the second dose by Oct. 15, 2021, unless granted an accommodation. Recognized vaccines include those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and/or Health Canada. More information will be shared soon on the process by which Memorial will be requesting vaccination information. 

  • The accommodation process for vaccine exemption is being finalized and will be communicated as soon as possible as well.

  • As a part of our shared responsibility to keep each other and our extended families safe during the upcoming school year, COVID-19 vaccines are now required for all students, faculty and staff and masks are required on all Memorial campuses in all indoor spaces.

  • Don’t come to campus if you’re sick and get tested if you have symptoms.
  • In response to federal government guidance strongly discouraging travel at this time, Memorial is suspending all international travel for university business. This decision will be re-evaluated as federal measures change based on successful vaccination roll-out and reduced risk. For questions or concerns, please contact vpacad@mun.ca. (March 29, 2021)

  • Check out MUNUp, a new online tools and resources hub to support student success.

  • Registration information and remote academic advising are available through the Office of the Registrar.
