4.1 Admission/Readmission Information

This section applies to all undergraduate applicants except those applying to the Faculty of Medicine.

Applicants seeking admission to the Faculty of Medicine should refer to the Faculty of Medicine regulations for information.

The application for admission or readmission to the University is submitted online. The application for admission or readmission to the University is submitted online at www.mun.ca/undergrad/admissions/apply. Applicants who are new to Memorial University of Newfoundland should follow the application instructions at www.mun.ca/undergrad/apply.

Applicants seeking admission to a particular faculty or school may be required to submit additional documents beyond those required for general admission to the University. Applicants should refer to appropriate faculty or school regulations for procedures, deadlines, admission requirements and further information.

  1. Applications for admission/readmission should be submitted by the following deadline dates: March 1 for Fall, October 1 for Winter, and February 1 for Spring (14-week, Intersession and Summer session). Applications received later than the stated deadline dates will be processed as time and resources permit.

  2. Each application must be accompanied by the appropriate application processing fee. An additional application processing fee is required from non-Canadian applicants or applicants transferring from post-secondary institutions outside of Newfoundland and Labrador. Neither fee is refundable nor will it be credited to the applicant's financial account under any circumstances. Information regarding fees and charges can be found on the Financial and Administrative Services website at www.mun.ca/finance/fees/.

  3. Applicants who have previously attended Memorial University of Newfoundland and have not registered for courses for the past three consecutive semesters (Fall, Winter, Spring) are required to submit a new Application for Admission/Readmission with the appropriate application processing fee.

  4. The admission criteria for each category of applicant is specified under Categories of Applicants, Admission Criteria And Required Documentation.

  5. Admission to some courses, programs and/or the University may be limited by the University when it deems the facilities and resources available to it are not adequate to provide for additional students. Consequently possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee that an applicant will be granted admission to a course, a program and/or the University.

  6. Applicants who meet the University’s general admission requirements may not necessarily meet the pre-requisites for registration in all first-year courses. Course registration may require the achievement of a minimum grade or score in a specific high school subject or in a specific placement or other standardized examination. For information on first-year English course placement for students who have been required to prove English proficiency for general admission purposes, see the regulations outlined under English Language Proficiency Requirements below. For information on course placement and pre-requisites for first-year mathematics and other subjects, consult the respective faculty and school sections of this Calendar.

  7. The University may set its own matriculation examinations either in separate subjects or in all those required for matriculation, and may refuse admission to any applicant failing to attain a satisfactory standard in these examinations.

  8. The University reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant.

  9. Applicants may be required to provide medical evidence of their fitness to pursue university studies. This should normally be in the form of the Student Health Certificate, available at www.mun.ca/regoff/forms.php.
