Applicants seeking admission to a particular faculty or school may be required to submit a supplementary faculty or school application in addition to the application for admission/readmission and should refer to appropriate faculty or school regulations for procedures, deadlines, admission requirements and further information.

  1. Applications for admission/readmission should be submitted by the deadline dates listed in the University Diary. Applications received later or post-marked later than the stated deadline dates will be processed as time and resources permit. Application forms and other information may be obtained by contacting the University in writing to the Admissions Office, Office of the Registrar, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, A1C 5S7, or by e-mail at or through the website at
