General technology standards

With guidance from the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, feedback from academic units, and input from the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies, Memorial University has developed general technology standards for remote/online learning across Memorial's campuses in fall 2020.

Undergraduate registration for each semester begins approximately two months prior to the start of the respective semester. Graduate registration begins approximately one month prior to the start of a given semester. The final exam schedule for the current semester is normally published two to three weeks after the end of the registration.

How to register

Before you register for courses, review the information on registration times and priority system, selecting courses, steps to register, common registration issues, and waitlists.

Course offerings

Course offerings for upcoming semesters/sessions are posted online and in Memorial Self-Service approximately one month before the start of registration for the semester.

Changes to your registration

After you have completed your initial registration, you may make changes to your registration through the add and drop process.

Final exams

Complete final exam schedules are available online and your personalized exam schedule is available in Memorial Self-Service. You should be familiar with the scheduling of final exams, applying to write a deferred exam, and accessing your final exams scripts, as outlined in the university Calendar.

Important dates and deadlines

The University Diary contains the official listing of all academic dates and deadlines. There is also a list of relevant registration and enrolment dates available online.
