Advice for undergraduate students
New Memorial University students
You may connect with the Academic Advising Centre in person, by phone or email during the months leading up to your first semester at Memorial and at any point after your courses begin. Academic advisors are a resource for you throughout your studies at Memorial, and are available to answer questions about course selection, program regulations, registration processes, university procedures and other academic matters.
First Year Information (FYI) is a resource for new students coming to Memorial. FYI includes information on available courses, programs and sample programs for the first two semesters for all of our degree programs. It also contains information about various placement tests you may be required to write before starting your studies. You are encouraged to review this information and to use it throughout your first year.
If you have already declared a major or been admitted to a program, your department or faculty will have resources and advisors available to guide you along your academic path.

If you have any questions before declaring or applying to your intended program about the program itself or course selection, you can make an appointment with an academic advisor or drop by the Academic Advising Centre, SN 4053.
