Memorial employees

Memorial University's Department of Human Resources can cover the cost of tuition for a MUN employee to take one of our faculty's courses per semester.

To quality, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are a permanent employee
  • You are contributing to Memorial University's benefits program
  • Your employment contract will remain active until at least the final day of the semester in which the course you take is offered

If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact

What costs are covered?

Eligible employees can take one academic credit course per semester up to a maximum of $255 for undergrad courses and $635 for graduate courses. Additionally, the registrar's office will waive your $60 application fee.

Employees are responsible for all other costs such as textbooks, student union fees, laboratory fees, and research and project fees.

How do I apply?

Approval for financial assistance must be obtained prior to the start date of the semester in which you will be taking your course.

For semester start dates, see the University Calendar or the Office of the Registrar's important dates page.  

To obtain funding approval from HR fill out the Application for Financial Assistance form and email it to

Upon approval from the Department of Human Resources, you will be eligible to have the equivalent of either one undergraduate course or one graduate program fee paid.

Note: Memorial has no obligation to pay for courses which have not received approval.

Await email confirmation of approval for funding from HR.

If your application is not approved, you will be promptly informed by the Department of Human Resources for the reason of non-approval.

Email, tell them you are a Memorial employee who has been approved for funding for a course, and ask for an application fee waiver code.

You will need this to submit your online application without having to pay the $60 fee.
