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 general admission. All applicants are also required to meet the English language requirement.

Supporting documents required

This category of admission requires documentation of your full academic history. If you have not completed a four-year bachelor degree, you will need to submit your official high school transcripts/certificates, in addition to all post-secondary transcripts. Check the admission requirements for Canadian and international curricula to find out how to submit your high school transcripts/certificates. 

Applicants to all nursing programs will be required to submit a high school transcript, even if they have completed a four-year bachelor degree.

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

Submitting your documents

You are responsible for making sure that all documents required for admission and 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.

An early acceptance decision for general admission may be possible based on the unofficial documents you upload to the admissions portal as part of your application. Transcripts submitted by students are considered unofficial. Official documents are required for verified acceptance, and must be received directly from the issuing institution or through the institution’s authorized document sending service. Official transcripts can be submitted to through an authorized document sending service or directly from an official email address listed on the website of the issuing institution. Transcripts sent by post/courier are considered official only when sent directly from the issuing institution. Any evaluation for transfer credit will not begin until official transcripts are received.

English translation
Official documents issued in a language other than English or French must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
