1) Status of fall semester
Grenfell Campus, and all of Memorial University, will welcome new and returning students to a
primarily remote teaching and learning environment for the fall
semester. Full in-person, on-campus courses will not resume before
“Our two main priorities are to ensure that all returning students
are able to successfully progress through their programs, and all new
students have the best possible start to their academic experience at
Memorial,” said Dr. Mark Abrahams, provost and vice-president (academic)
“Our decision-making on academic program delivery continues to be
informed by guidance and directives from provincial public health
officials and the decision is subject to change at a later date if
deemed necessary. We plan to offer remote and equitable access to our
high quality programming while helping to flatten the COVID-19 curve in
Newfoundland and Labrador.”
Dr. Abrahams said Memorial will be putting supports in place to enable student success in the remote learning environment.
Limited forms of re-opening of necessary on-campus activity in the
fall semester may occur in a gradual, measured and safe manner that
adheres to the provincial government’s COVID-19 Alert Level System and
aligns with provincial health directives.
Academic units may submit a proposal to the appropriate
vice-president for review to permit students on campus in the fall
semester. Further details on how this process will work and how it will
be rolled out in a safe and equitable manner, considering that many
Memorial students reside outside the province, will be shared when it
Western Regional School of Nursing will communicate details about their return to classes
directly to new and current students in that program.2) Information for applicants
How should I submit physical copies of documents required for my application?
We are currently reviewing the processes to deal with these unexpected delays. Mail Services will continue to receive any couriered documents and deliver them to Admissions Office. However, processing delays have been put in place to ensure our staff's health and safety. Continue to check www.mun.ca/undergrad/apply for updates.
What should I do if I cannot get access to my required admissions documents?
If you can get a digital copy of the required document from the required institution, you can request that they email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the institution cannot email it directly to Memorial, then you can email it to the same email address. If the institution is not able to provide you with a document, then send the most recent copy of the document you have to email@example.com and we will follow up with you if more information is required. Please be sure to submit your documents in pdf format and include your Memorial student number if possible.
There is no one answering the Admissions phone line. What should I do?
Our staff have been requested to work remotely. It is suggested that you email your questions/inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be monitoring and answering this email address.
When will I hear about my transfer credit request?
Processing of transfer credits have been paused from March 18-27. We are expecting to resume processing by March 30. However, priority will be given to application processing in the first instance.
Will I still receive my admissions letters and email?
Yes. Once admissions processing resumes on March 24, emails regarding your admission application will resume as well.
How can I check on the status of my application?
You can monitor your application and supporting documents status online using the credentials used to submit your application at https://www5.mun.ca/admit/bwskalog.P_DispLoginNon or through Memorial Self Service.
I am not able to write the standardized test required for proof of English proficiency. What should I do?
Currently, we are processing applications based on the information we have received to date. If you have not provided any proof of English proficiency then we will base admission on performance in any English courses you have completed to date. We will offer provisional admissions based on this review but we are still planning to request official test results be provided for final admission. Alternate arrangements may have to be made for Spring 2020 semester admissions.
