I've Applied...What Next?

Important Information for International Applicants

As noted in the announcement from the Government of Canada, as of January 22, 2024, every study permit application submitted will also require an attestation letter from a province or territory. The process for Memorial University applicants to obtain a PAL from the Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Government and any updates pertaining to the process is available on the following website: Provincial Attestation Letter application process | Undergraduate Admissions and Programs | Memorial University of Newfoundland (mun.ca).

1. Application Received!

Once your application for admission has been received by the Office of the Registrar, your Marine Institute Student ID will be confirmed or created. Any application documents that have been received will be attached to your application.

If you apply online, your Application Summary and Credit Card Receipt are your confirmation that your application has been submitted successfully and will be processed by the Registrar's Office. Applications are normally processed in the order that they are received.

The Registrar's Office will contact you by e-mail, using the address supplied on your application, to acknowledge receipt of your application once processing has begun. This e-mail message will link you to important information for applicants and new students to Marine Institute and will confirm your:

  • Student identification number.
  • Program of study requested.
  • Personal address and other contact information.

Transcripts and other documents required for applications are received daily and are matched with each related application as soon as possible after they arrive.

2. How Long Does it Take to Receive and Process my Application for Admission and Supporting Documents?

Applications that are submitted online are normally received and processed within 3 business days following submission. Application processing times during peak periods (early January to late April) may be longer.

Paper applications and supporting documents may take a little longer. Please allow 10 to 15 business days for domestic mail, four to five weeks for international mail, and two to three business days for faxed or couriered documents to be received and processed for review.

3. How Can I Check the Status of My Application?

If you applied online as a new student to Marine Institute you can also return to the Online Application for Admission, using application login ID and PIN, to track the status of your application.

Current or former Marine Institute students who applied using Memorial Self-Service can check the status using Admissions menu there.

Applicants who apply using a paper copy of the Application for Admission/Readmission do not have access to online status updates.

4. Something Missing?

The Registrar’s Office will contact you by e-mail or letter to remind you if documents that are required for your application have not been received. You can also track the status of required documents, if you applied online, as outlined above.

5. How Will I Hear?

Applications for admission are reviewed within the Office of the Registrar once they are complete. These decisions are communicated by letter from the Office of the Registrar and will be sent to the permanent address provided on your application for admission.

6. When Will I Hear About My Admission Status?

Decisions regarding admission are normally made within several days following the receipt of all required documents (see above). A letter confirming your admission or readmission status will normally be sent by the Registrar's Office within two business days after a decision is made regarding admission eligibility.

7. Can I Receive Early Admission if I am Still in High School or if I am Attending Another University or College?

Applicants who are currently completing courses in high school or at another recognized post-secondary institution may be considered for early admission once all documents, other than the final official transcript, have been received.

Students preparing to meet the Institute's English proficiency requirements may also be eligible for early admission if this is the only other item that is outstanding.

Early admission is always subject to a review of final, official transcripts or test score reports to ensure that admission requirements are met at that time.
