Can I move into student housing?
As the majority of students will be learning remotely, Student Housing will not be open in a usual capacity. Currently, the Chalet Apartments are the only residence community that will be available for students in exceptional circumstances (those unable to travel) and for those required to be on campus due to program requirements.
Any student who is required to be on campus for this winter will be required to submit a separate application specific to the Winter 2021 semester.
I have questions about my study permit and visa. Is there anyone I can contact for clarification?
check the IRCC website for information related to the study permit
application process. If you would like to discuss your situation with a
Registered Canadian Immigration Counselor (RCIC), you can contact email@example.com
to set up an appointment. In the meantime, it may be useful to ensure
that you have the appropriate documentation prepared for your
application to be evaluated. Applicants may also want to consider
including a letter explaining why they chose their specific program of
study and why they chose Canada as a study destination when submitting
their study permit application.
I am waiting for a decision on my study permit application. Can I
start studying online?
your study permit application is not approved, you can still take remote or
online courses at Memorial but you will not be able to enter
Canada to complete your studies until
your application has been approved and you’ve received your Letter of
Introduction (LOI). We encourage
you to apply as soon as possible. We also recommend that you speak with a Memorial
staff member to ensure you understand your options and other implications that
online/remote study may have on your immigration status in Canada. For more
information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in mind that you may not receive your LOI until near the beginning
of the Fall semester. We encourage you to register for courses anyway. Course
registration will take place in November; you should have received notification of your
assigned registration time through your @mun.ca email account. Your tuition and
other fees are due in January 2020. However, we kindly ask that you avoid
paying your tuition until you are entirely certain that you will be studying
with us for the entire semester as it can take several weeks to receive a
My study permit application has been refused. What should I do
study permit application is not approved, you can still take remote or online
courses at Memorial but you will not be able to enter Canada to complete your
studies upon the resumption of on-campus classes until your application has
been approved and you’ve received your Letter of Introduction (LOI). If you
have no intention of re-applying for a study permit and you have already
registered for courses, you must enter your Memorial Self-Service account and
drop the classes for which you registered. Not doing so will result in a
balance owing on your student account as well as an incomplete grade in that
course which will impact your academic record. If you have questions or would
like more information about your options, contact email@example.com.
My study permit application has been approved and I have received
my LOI. What should I do? Can I travel to Canada and study on-campus?
submit a copy of your LOI to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Will I still be required to buy the University Health Insurance?
Health and dental insurance
is offered by the Grenfell Campus Student Union. This semester, you
will still have access to this coverage and you will have to pay for
undergraduate health and dental insurance. Opt out is available.
If you are an international student it is very important to understand your health insurance coverage. For more information, click here or email email@example.com with any questions.
