Undergraduate Programs Frequently Asked Questions

The deadline to apply for the upcoming semester has passed. Can I still submit an application?

To ensure your application is considered for admission, applications should be submitted on or before application deadlines. Late applications may be reviewed where time and resources permit.

I’m a new student at Memorial. How can I find out more about the university and St. John’s?

More information on our university, city and province can be found here and here.

I’m not a business student. Can I register for business courses?

At the beginning of the registration period for the upcoming term, spaces in business courses are reserved for students enrolled in undergraduate business programs. When reserves are then lifted, Memorial students in other programs may register if prerequisites have been met and space is available. See relevant dates as listed by the Registrar’s Office.

I’m studying at another post-secondary institution. Does Memorial’s Faculty of Business Administration have any transfer agreements?

Students at other post-secondary institutions who wish to transfer to Memorial may apply to the university as transfer students. Courses taken at other post-secondary institutions are individually evaluated by the Office of the Registrar. Questions about receiving credit for courses taken at other post-secondary institutions may be directed to transfer.credit@mun.ca. The University Calendar offers additional information on the awarding of transfer credit.

A class I am trying to register for is full. Can I be signed in by a professor?

We do not over-subscribe business courses or sign students into classes. Professors are unable to facilitate this process.

How do I get notified about scholarships, upcoming events and work and volunteer opportunities specific to the faculty?

The Undergraduate Programs Office sends regular communication to business students through the undergraduate email listserv. If you are not already receiving emails from the office, email busihelp@mun.ca with your request to be added to the listserv. Be sure to include your name, student number and program of study. You may also follow our social media channels for information about what's happening at the faculty.
