Newfoundland and Labrador Resident Definition

A student’s residency definition for the purposes of applying appropriate tuition fees will normally be determined at the time the student first applies to Memorial and will remain in place until the student completes a degree or graduate diploma from Memorial. Should a student apply for a subsequent degree or graduate diploma at Memorial, the residency status will be reassessed.

Newfoundland and Labrador resident definition

The applicant must be a citizen of Canada and must meet at least one of the following four criteria:

  1. The applicant has attended a Newfoundland and Labrador high school within the two years prior to the semester which admission is sought. This includes those students who are deemed to have met Newfoundland and Labrador high school requirements through other equivalent means (e.g. homeschooling).
  2. At the time of general application to the University, the permanent home address for the applicant is located in Newfoundland and Labrador. Applicants may be required to provide evidence of permanent home address. See note below.
  3. The applicant is in receipt of a student loan issued by Newfoundland and Labrador Student Aid.
  4. The applicant has lived in the province for 12 consecutive months without undertaking full-time studies at a recognized post-secondary institution.

Note: Canadian applicants who have lived outside Newfoundland and Labrador for twelve consecutive months without undertaking fulltime studies at a recognized post-secondary institution will be considered a resident of the province where they resided at the time of application.

In the event that incomplete, false or misleading information is submitted, Memorial University reserves the right to retroactively reassess all tuition fees for each semester affected, revoke the status and take disciplinary action against the student according to the Memorial University Code.
