On Tuesday, April 14, Memorial’s Senate waived the undergraduate general admission overall average requirement of 70 per cent for Newfoundland and Labrador high school students in the graduating class of 2020 who apply to attend Memorial University in the 2020-21 academic year (Fall 2020, Winter 2021, or Spring 2021).

Applicants will need to have completed graduation requirements for high school as set down by the provincial Department of Education and obtained passing credits in the subjects outlined in the university Calendar, which include English, mathematics, laboratory science, social studies or modern/classical language and an elective.
