Welcome Transfer Students
Already a MUN Student?
Are you currently attending, or have you in the past attended, another recognized university or college? If so, you should select the correct category on the application for admission. You are encouraged to review Memorial University's regulations related to transfer credit in the Admissions section of the General Regulations in the University Calendar as well as the information below.
Click on the appropriate category to find the instructions on becoming a Grenfell Student.
Great news. Current Memorial students (registered in current or previous two semesters) can move freely between the St. John's campus and Grenfell Campus. You are already a MUN student and eligible to take courses on either campus. It is important to recognize that the programs delivered on each campus are unique. This means you should always consult an academic advisor to determine how changing your campus will effect your program.
Current students do NOT need to apply to come to Grenfell Campus. By registering for courses on the Grenfell Campus during your regular registration window you automatically become a Grenfell student.
Students should declare a program
as early as possible. Once you have completed this form forward it to the Registrar's Office at Grenfell and it will be sent to the appropriate faculty for signature and processing.
Students should be aware that student housing on each campus operate as their own entities. Grenfell has nearly 600 single room shared-accommodations and students should apply
as on-campus housing is usually in high demand.
The Grenfell Campus of Memorial University has some unique articulation agreements with College of the North Atlantic. If you have completed an articulated program you will be given a block transfer of courses towards a university degree. If you have taken courses in a program which is not articulated you will still be eligible to have those courses evaluated on a course-by-course basis to determine if they have Memorial University equivalencies.
Transcripts submitted by students are considered unofficial unless it is not
possible to obtain an official transcript from another institution which must be
confirmed by the Office of the Registrar. In such cases, a notarized copy
supplied by the student may be accepted.
We will want transcripts from ALL post-secondary institutions you have attended. We also require an official version of your high school transcript.
For students currently attending another institution, an interim official
transcript is required in advance of the final official transcript in order to
begin the assessment of eligibility for admission and transfer credit.
Throughout the process of evaluating your transcript we may require you to provide additional information:
Calendar descriptions for all courses completed are required for the transfer
credit evaluation process. These are normally available (and thus do not need to
be sent by the student) from online calendars published by Canadian
institutions. Students transferring from Canadian institutions where online
calendar course descriptions are not available should send photocopied calendar
course descriptions to the Office of the Registrar.
For universities or colleges outside of Canada, detailed course outlines are
normally always required and should be sent to the Office of the Registrar
directly by an appropriate official at the institution in question.
Course descriptions/outlines must be taken from the appropriate calendar
year(s) for each course completed. Photocopies are acceptable but must be taken
directly from the calendar.
All documents required for admission and transfer credit eligibility must be
in English. Translated documents must be notarized.
