1. Choose a program and a campus
Memorial University offers a wide variety of programs. With over 300 program options and multiple campuses to choose from, your choices are wide open. Check out what is offered at the St. John’s Campus, Grenfell Campus, the Marine Institute, the Labrador Campus or online.
Application deadlines vary by program. We encourage you to submit your application well in advance of the posted deadlines.
If you are applying from outside of Canada and will need a study permit, review the study permit processing times to ensure you have sufficient time to arrive to Memorial.
A) General admission requirements
General admission means you meet the university’s minimum requirements to gain early or verified acceptance.
All applicants must meet general admission requirements before being considered for admission to a competitive-entry program. If you are taking courses at a university or college for the first time, you will first be considered for admission under a general admission program such as a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science.
English language requirement
All applicants to Memorial University must meet our English language requirement.
If you haven’t yet met the requirement, you may be interested in our English as a Second Language program offered at the Grenfell Campus.
B) Competitive-entry program requirements
If you are successful with general admission and have applied to a competitive-entry program, your application will be forwarded to that faculty/school for consideration. You will hear from them separately.
Note: Admission to Memorial's competitive-entry programs is competitive and selective. Meeting the minimum general admission requirements does not guarantee admission to a competitive-entry program.
