University Regulations (2022/2023)
8.2 Scholarship Standing

Students will be considered for scholarships based on the following minimum criteria:

  1. Scholarship standing for undergraduate entrance students (who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents graduating from secondary schools within Canada) is defined as a 75% average compiled from the final grades received in secondary school courses required for University admission. Students in level three who, have a 90% or higher average on 3000 level credits from the list of courses covered under UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - Admission/Readmission to the University (Undergraduate), Applicants Who Have Followed the High School Curriculum of the Newfoundland and Labrador, may be provisionally offered scholarships. Students graduating from High Schools in other provinces in Canada may be eligible based on corresponding criteria from their provincial secondary program. The provisional offer will remain in effect until University admission averages are determined.

  2. Scholarship standing for undergraduate students is defined as a 75% average at the end of two out of the last three semesters in the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than 30 credit hours in those two semesters. In considering students who complete more than 30 credit hours in those two semesters, the average on the actual number of credit hours taken will be reviewed. Students who fail one or more courses during the scholarship year, regardless of the number of courses completed, will not be eligible for scholarships.

  3. For Co-op students who do not meet the above definition because of scheduled work terms, scholarship standing is defined as a 75% average over the most recent two academic semesters in the preceding four semesters in which they must have been enrolled as regular full-time Co-op students. Those who fail an academic course or work term during the four-semester period will not be eligible for scholarships.

  4. Students transferring to Memorial University of Newfoundland from Universities/Colleges in Canada which are members of Universities Canada and who meet scholarship standing as defined by Memorial University of Newfoundland will be eligible for undergraduate scholarships in the year in which they transfer. Such students must notify the Scholarships, Awards, and Financial Aid Office in writing of their intention to transfer and provide a complete transcript for the year in question.

  5. Not all students who meet the above definitions of scholarship standing will receive a scholarship.
