Bachelor of Commerce: Transfer Students

Students who have completed courses at another university or post-secondary institution may apply for admission to the bachelor of commerce (co-operative) program using the following steps:

Step 1: Apply to Memorial University

Transfer students must submit an application to Memorial University by following the application instructions at

To apply directly to the Faculty of Business Administration, indicate your preference for admission to pre-business administration.

Students are encouraged to submit their applications early as it typically takes four to eight weeks from the time an application is completed (including the receipt of all transcripts and course outlines) to receive the results of the application. For more information about the process, please review Information for Transfer Students.

Step 2: Have Your Transfer Credits Evaluated

Submit official transcripts from post-secondary institutions (for example, College of the North Atlantic or any other post-secondary institution that a student has attended) to the Office of the Registrar via mail:

Office of the Registrar
Memorial University of Newfoundland
P.O. Box 4200
230 Elizabeth Avenue
St. John's, NL
Canada A1C 5S7

Step 3: Understand How Your Courses Fit into the Program Structure

Upon receiving your transfer credit information, you should compare your credits with the list of first-year business program courses (also known as Term A/B):

Pre-Business Courses (Term A/B)
Term A (Fall) Term B (Winter)
 Business 1000  Math 1000* or Elective
 Math 1090* or Math 1000  Economics 2020
 Economics 2010  English 1110
 English 1080  Non-Business Elective
 Non-Business Elective  Non-Business Elective
* Depending on your level of preparation in math, you may be required to complete Math 1090 and/or foundation-level courses in math as pre-requisites for Math 1000. If Math 1090 is required, it may count as three credit hours (one course) in non-business electives.


If you are missing any of the above, you will need to complete them before applying to Term 1.

Depending on the transferred credits received, you may apply for advanced standing into Terms 1, 2, 3 or 4 of the bachelor of commerce (co-operative) program.

To be considered for admission with advanced standing to Terms 1 (fall), 2 (winter), 3 (fall) or 4 (spring), you must have all the program courses completed up to that semester with a sufficiently high average to compete for a place in the class.

It may be helpful to use the audit form to determine your best point of entry into the program. For example, a student must complete all the Term A/B courses to apply to Term 1. Further information on the program schedule can be found in the University Calendar.

Step 4: Apply to the Faculty of Business Administration
