Changes to Registration

Memorial University provides registration through Memorial Self-Service. Information about Registration Procedures outline students' responsibilities and instructions for using the system. Therefore, please take a few moments to review them.

If you are a new student or a returning student who has had to apply for readmission to Memorial University, your email account will receive confirmation of your eligibility to register with the date and time at which you may begin your registration, as well as your program of studies. This information is also available from Memorial Self-Service.

Once you have completed your initial registration, you may make changes through the drop and add process. Changes in registration are not official unless you use the drop and add process. Most changes can be made through Memorial Self-Service. Please ensure you know deadlines for dropping and/or adding courses each semester. Check the Relevant Dates for each semester and the University Diary for the current academic year.

In cases where Memorial Self-Service will not let you add or drop, it will be necessary for you to use a course change form. The course change form should be used only when changes cannot be made through Memorial Self-Service. Course change forms and cancellation of registration forms, which contain instructions for completion, are available at the Office of the Registrar and the Academic Advising Centre in St. John's and the Office of the Registrar at Grenfell Campus. You can download the pdf of the fillable Course Change Form. The form is valid only if properly stamped or signed by the Registrar’s Office.

If you wish to change sections of a course (e.g. Math 1000) which is a co-requisite for another course, (e.g. Physics 1050), add the new section before dropping the old; otherwise you will become deregistered in the course which requires the co-requisite, in this case Physics 1050.
