I've Applied. Now What?

1. Submit your documents

Applicants will be contacted via email, using the address specified on the application, to acknowledge receipt of an application once processing has begun. The confirmation will include the following information: 

  • student identification number
  • program of study requested
  • personal contact information 
  • application login id and pin

Once you receive this email, you can submit your transcripts and other supporting documents. Make sure you submit your documents before the application deadlines. As your documents are received, they are matched to your application. Where possible, provide your student ID number with your document(s).

If we haven't received your documents within three weeks of your application acknowledgement, we will remind you by email of any outstanding supporting documents. 

2. Check the status of your application and review processing times

Application status

If this is your first time applying, you can log in to the online application for admission, using your application login ID and PIN, to track the status of the application. Current or former Memorial students can log in to Memorial Self-Service to check the status using the "Admissions" menu.

3. Plan your finances

Our students benefit from one of the lowest tuition fees in Canada, since our tuition is subsidized by our provincial government. To assist students with their finances, we provide opportunities to work on-campus and receive scholarships.

Entrance scholarships 
Newfoundland students 

To be considered for early entrance scholarship offers, you must apply for admission and e-mail an unofficial copy of your mid-year grade/progress report (issued by your school in January or February) no later than March 1.

Out-of-province Canadian students

To be considered for an early entrance scholarship offer, you must submit an interim transcript showing your completed grade 11 and grade 12 courses to date by the March 1 priority deadline.
