What is the status of the fall 2021 semester?
Planning for the fall 2021 semester is currently underway. It is expected that students, faculty and staff will be on campus and in-person for university activities in September.
We are now in the process of preparing for the return to on-campus teaching and learning. Detailed planning for the fall 2021 semester is ongoing and information will be shared as it becomes available on Memorial’s COVID-19 website.
New and current students should make plans to be on our campuses for their university experiences this fall, unless all of the courses they are registered for are offered online.
Memorial is continually assessing the evolving public health environment and will make any needed adjustments to the fall semester based on public health requirements. The fall 2021 semester experience will look different, as Memorial will continue to follow public health requirements, which could include the use of non-medical face masks, physical distancing and other public health measures.
Will students have to self-isolate if arriving from outside of Newfoundland and Labrador?
Students arriving from outside of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador may be required to self-isolate for 14 days and should make plans to arrive in the province by mid-August.
International students who wish to attend Memorial this fall are strongly advised to move quickly to submit their study permit requests to the Government of Canada immediately following receipt of their offer of admission from Memorial. They should also make plans to arrive in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador by mid-August to allow for the required 14-day self-isolation period before classes begin.
