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?

Please 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 international@grenfell.mun.ca 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?

If 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 international@grenfell.mun.ca. 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 refund.

My study permit application has been refused. What should I do now?

If 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 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 international@grenfell.mun.ca.

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?

Please submit a copy of your LOI to admiss.docs@mun.ca. The regulations around entry to Canada are changing regularly to adapt to the evolving situation of COVID-19. For more information, visit https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/travel-restrictions-exemptions.html.

If I choose to study online, how might my post-graduation work permit (PGWP) be affected?

Please visit the following website for up-to-date information about post-graduation work permit eligibility: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/students.html

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 international@grenfell.mun.ca with any questions.
