I did Math 3201 in high school. Why can't I register for Math 1090 in the 10-week semester?
The 10-week offering of Math 1090 is part of the Math Bridging Program, designed to ensure that students are on track to register for their expected courses in the fall semester. Math 1090-091 is restricted to new students who did Math 3200 (or equivalent) in high school. It is a condensed, faster paced version of Math 1090, more challenging than the standard Math 1090 course, and academic math students will not be admitted. Math 3201 students are advised to consider the non-credit 4-week program to improve proficiencies to allow for success in Math 1090 in the fall semester.
I did Math 3200 in high school. Why can't I register for Math 1000 in the 10-week semester?
The 10-week offering of Math 1000 is part of the Math Bridging Program, designed to ensure that students are on track to register for their expected courses in the fall semester. Math 1000-091 and 1000-092 are restricted to new students who did Math 3208 (or equivalent) in high school. It is a condensed, faster paced version of Math 1000, more challenging than the standard Math 1000 course, and students who haven't studied calculus in high school will not be admitted. Math 3200 students are advised to consider registering for Math 1090 in the 10-week semester.
I can't register for the course I want. What should I do?
If I register for a course in the spring semester, do I need to complete Academic Integrity before I can register for the fall semester?
No. We encourage students to complete the Academic Integrity course prior to starting courses; however, you are not required to have it completed until week 7 of the fall semester (week of October 19). You must successfully complete Integrity 1000 before you will be permitted to register for the winter semester.
How do I register for the non-credit Bridge to 1090?
You can register for the non-credit bridging course on the math website. This course is designed to improve mathematics skills necessary for success in MATH 1090.
Does the non-credit program count against my course limit for the Kickstart program?
No, the non-credit Bridge to 1090 will not count towards your registration limit. You may also take one of the other non-Math credit courses.
Will this impact my program that I intend to start in September?
Our Academic Advisors are available to assist you with course selection.

What is the cost for doing a course this spring semester?
The fees per course can be found on the fee charts.
Can I get student aid?
As you are only registering for one course, you are considered a part-time student and would not qualify for student aid. Further questions related to this should be directed to your provincial student aid office.
I've been awarded an early scholarship to Memorial. Will doing a course affect this?
Registering for a course will not affect your eligibility for scholarships in fall 2020. However, you will still be required to do 30-credit hours over the fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters. If you fail to pass a course in either the spring, fall or winter semesters you will not qualify for scholarships in 2021-22.
Will academic accommodations be available to me during this semester?
Memorial recognizes and values neurodiversity in all learners who choose to study at Memorial.
Incoming students who will require specific academic accommodations as part of their educational experience at Memorial are encouraged to reach out to the appropriate accessibility services team at either the St. John’s campus or Grenfell Campus as soon as possible.
Students are encouraged to email the Blundon Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org (St. John’s Campus) or email@example.com (Grenfell Campus). Accessibility staff at both campuses are working remotely and will be able to work with you to ensure you get timely and appropriate assistance and guidance.
Am I required to be available at a set time for any of these course offerings?
You are expected to be available at the time listed on the course. Only the following courses have a set meeting time: ENGL 1000, ENSU 1000, GERM 1010, PSYC 1000, THEA 1000
How do I know what textbooks are required and how do I purchase them?
You will receive information about any required textbooks when classes start. If textbooks are required, digital versions will be available for purchase through the Bookstore.
How do I access course content?

Are there any resources to help me?
