Information for Guidance Counsellors

We recognize that guidance counsellors play an important role in a student's decision towards post-secondary studies. Below you'll find information to guide you in helping prospective students make that important decision.


Learn about our programs

Some students know exactly what they want to study at university, while others remain uncertain. With over 100 degree options at Memorial University, there is something for everyone. We encourage students to look over the list of degree programs offered at Memorial to see if there is something of interest to them. 


Check the application deadlines and apply to Memorial

The priority application deadlines for general admission are as follows:

  • March 1 - fall (September) semester
  • Oct. 1 - winter (January) semester
  • Feb. 1 - spring (May) semester

Some of our programs have specific application deadlines. These dates are also listed under each program in the  undergraduate programs section of this site.

The undergraduate application for admission is available online. To submit an application, students are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of $60 CAD for Canadian high school students and $120 CAD for international students and students transferring from institutions outside Newfoundland and Labrador. The fee is payable by Visa or MasterCard only (debit and pre-paid credit cards are not accepted).

Applying online allows the applicant to log back into the application system to check the status of their application at a later date.


Submit the required documents

Documents required for admission can vary by province, country or curriculum. Check the admission requirements section to find the documents your student will need to submit when applying to Memorial. 

Where official transcripts are required, original documents must be sent directly from the originating school or issuing institution. Where this is not possible, we will accept notarized copies of the originals.


Consider student residence options

There is a separate online application for our on-campus student residences. To apply for Student Residences, students must be accepted to the University. Check out Student Residences for further details on living on-campus.


Find out about scholarships and financial aid

Canadian and international applicants are automatically considered for entrance scholarships based on their application for admission. There is no further application required for entrance scholarships. Students must ensure that their undergrdaute application for admission and supporting documents are submitted by the March 1 application deadline for consideration. 

For students in Newfoundland and Labrador, schools are asked to nominate their top students for early scholarship offers of $2,000 or more. These offers are limited to students who have an average of 90% or higher on the courses required for admission to Memorial University.

For more information on entrance scholarships, review the entrance scholarship criteria for Canadian and international students.

For Canadian students who are looking to apply for government student loans, the Canada Student Loans Program Application Kits are available in June. Visit for details.


Seek academic advice

We want to ensure that students have a chance to ask questions, as well as provide them with all of the important information they need about applications, course selection, and registration procedures. For answers to their academic questions, students can review first year information or contact the Academic Advising Centre.
