Advanced standing and transfer credit
Applicants wishing to be considered for advanced standing or transfer credit must submit, in addition to the Application for Admission/Readmission, an Application for Transfer Credit Evaluation which can be obtained online or in-person from the Office of the Registrar. Official transcript(s) and calendar descriptions and/or outlines of courses claimed for credit are also required and should be sent directly to Memorial University of Newfoundland from the institution attended.
In order to allow sufficient time for evaluation, these documents should be received at least two months prior to the commencement of the registration period for the semester to which the applicant is seeking admission. It is the student's responsibility to provide the pertinent documents, and until they are received, the Office of the Registrar is unable to commence an evaluation or to advise students of their standing at this University.
The award of transfer credit is subject to the following regulations:
When transfer credit is awarded for work completed at another institution, only equivalent Memorial University of Newfoundland course(s) and credit(s) are recorded on the Memorial University of Newfoundland transcript. Grades received from other institutions are not recorded nor included in averages.
Applicants who have not received the results of a transfer credit evaluation prior to the assigned registration time for the semester in which they propose to begin studies should contact the Admissions Office for further assistance.
Memorial University of Newfoundland will consider for transfer credit courses for which credit has been granted through a Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition process by another recognized university or college.
Award of credit will be subject to University Regulations and evaluation and recommendation by the appropriate academic unit(s).
The applicability of all transfer credits, whether specified or unspecified, is subject to appropriate program regulations.
Information regarding course equivalencies can be obtained from the Admissions Office, Office of the Registrar.
