University or College Applicant

General admission requirements

Applicants with an academic record at a post-secondary institution are subject to Memorial University's continuance and readmission regulation which requires applicants to be in good academic standing at their previous or current institutions to be eligible for admission.

Supporting documents required

If you have not completed a four year bachelor’s degree, you will be required to submit your official high school transcript/certificates, in addition to all post-secondary transcripts. This category of admission requires documentation of your full academic history.

Detailed course syllabi may be required for transfer credit evaluation, for the purposes of admission to, and placement in your program.

Submitting your documents

You are responsible for making sure that all documents required for admission or transfer credit evaluation are provided. The results of your transfer credit evaluation are important for course planning and registration. For this reason, you are advised to apply early and forward the required documents at least two months prior to the start of the semester for which admission is sought.

All required transcripts and course outlines must be sent to the Office of the Registrar by the issuing institution directly.  Transcripts submitted by students are considered unofficial. However, in countries where it is not possible to obtain an official transcript, a notarized copy supplied by the student may be accepted upon approval of the Office of the Registrar.

English translation
All documents required for admission must be in English. Translated documents must be notarized.

Supporting documents should be sent to:

Office of the Registrar
Memorial University
Room A2000
Arts and Administration Building
230 Elizabeth Ave.
St. John's NL A1C 5S7
