Non-degree or Visiting Student Requirements

Applicants seeking admission to Memorial University for a limited period of time should apply under the category of visiting student. This category allows admission for up to two consecutive semesters. However, your registration eligibility is subject to course availability and completion of course pre-requisites. You are strongly encouraged to speak with the academic unit offering the course(s) of interest to verify registration eligibility, prior to submitting your application.

This category encompasses the following:

1. Applicants who are attending another post-secondary institution who would like to take one/two courses at Memorial University and transfer back to their home institution for credit towards a degree.

Admission requirements
    • Applicants must be in good academic standing at their institution
Supporting documents required
    • Letter of Permission or final transcript from the institution attending. The Letter of Permission is treated the same as a transcript for the purposes of admission, therefore, must be sent directly from the Office of the Registrar of the issuing institution to be considered official.
