Is it possible to take graduate courses from my home country?
Yes, assuming you have the technology requirements, you can take courses that are offered remotely.
How would that affect the research part of the program?
research that cannot be conducted from home can be conducted when you
return to campus. Remember that as a graduate student, you will not run
out of time. No graduate students will be terminated from programs at
this time due to a lack of progress in their studies. Graduate students
who are close to or exceed the time limit for program completion will
be granted a one-semester extension automatically. If you do not wish to
extend your program, please email us at email@example.com.
Is housing available at Grenfell for the fall?
effort will be made to accommodate students who are required to be on
campus for their course work. Students who are not required to be on
campus will not be expected to live in Corner Brook
I am a new international graduate student. Do I need a study permit in order to register?
If you intend on coming to Canada to complete your degree, we will require a valid study permit or a letter of introduction from IRCC before you can register for Fall 2020.
I was hoping to gain some experience as a TA but that possibility may be affected?
At Grenfell it is our intent to offer online/remote TA opportunities.

Will I continue to receive my baseline funding?
funding will continue to be distributed and continuance fees will
continue to be charged. Graduate students at Grenfell Campus should
speak to their program graduate officer about baseline funding
extensions. Baseline extensions apply to funding that is ending Aug. 31 and Dec. 31, extended for one semester.
How will I benefit from paying GSU fees? What is the role of the GGSS now?

members, and arrange informational Town Halls and other online
activities to connect graduate students with each other. The Graduate
Student Union also continues to be active. For a full list of services

How will I know if I am permitted on campus once things start to return to "normal?"
As campus re-opens, decisions about which activities are required to be in-person will be considered; however, activities that are not required to be in person (such as thesis defenses) will be carried out remotely.
