1) Status of January 2020 semester
Grenfell Campus, and all of Memorial University, will continue to operate in a primarily remote teaching and learning environment for the winter 2021 semester. This decision was taken in a special meeting of the university Senate in September. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of the entire Memorial community, therefore most in-person, on-campus courses will not resume before May 2021.
Academic units can submit proposals for review to the appropriate vice-president at Grenfell Campus, the St. John's campus and the Marine Institute to permit students onto campus where necessary in the winter 2021 semester. The proposals will be evaluated in accordance with criteria approved by Senate at a later date; and the provost will have discretion with proposals in the meantime.
It is important to note that any on-campus activity will occur in a measured and safe manner, adhering to the provincial government's COVID-19 Alert Level System and aligning with provincial public health directives.
Students in programs with significant practical components will have opportunities for more in-person teaching and learning experiences. More detailed information will be provided to students by academic units. 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 email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com. We will be monitoring and answering this email address.
Will I still receive my admissions letters and email?
Yes. Emails regarding your admission application will be sent.
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.
Below are updates from some test agencies:
3) Payments to student accounts
The Bursar's Office will have limited opening for those in the area needing to pay in person. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
You can still pay your student account through MUN self service with Visa or Mastercard, or through online banking at your Canadian Financial institution. Set up Memorial University Newfoundland as a bill payee and use your student number as the account number.
