Internal Transfer to Arts

The following information is for students currently in a University of Waterloo program interested in applying to the Faculty of Arts. If you have been admitted to Arts from another post-secondary institution, our New Transfer Student page provides course selection information.

Review the admission requirements for the program that you are interested in below. In some cases a non-degree (or qualifying) term may be required before transferring.


  • Consult with your current academic advisor to discuss the options available within your current Faculty.
  • Consult with a career advisor at Co-operative Education and Career Action (CECA) in the Tatham Centre to discuss future career planning and to make sure Arts is right for you.
