WaterlooWorks Performance Delays

Due to increased activity related to the approaching application deadline, some WaterlooWorks servers experienced slower processing time beginning at approximately 10:15 pm last night.  Students were able to continue submitting applications throughout the evening and early morning hours, and by 9 am this morning a record number of applications had been submitted.  However, given that some students were impacted by the poor performance, the application deadline for all jobs has been extended to 10 am.  IST and Orbis are continuing to monitor the situation and make adjustments.  We apologize
