If you have a question about the CFM program, whether its regarding courses, exams, or graduation, you are encouraged to seek out academic advising.

Academic Advisor

Heather Steinmetz is the CFM Program Manager and serves as the academic advisor for all CFM students, and other Waterloo students looking to learn more about the program.

Office hours

These are held every Tuesday and Wednesday from 2:00 - 4:00 pm in the Davis Centre (DC) 2121. Please arrange an appointment if neither of these dates and times work for your schedule.

In-person advising is cancelled until further notice. Please send me an email to arrange a videochat. 

Important emails

CFM students will receive an email each month with important dates and events with details on academic and student-related information. Check your UWaterloo email regularly to see if some your questions have been answered.

Common questions for advising

Transfers How can I transfer into CFM?

NOTE: CFM students admitted for fall 2019 and fall 2020 will be enrolled into AFM 132 instead of AFM 131. This is a new course that was added to replace AFM 132 and has not yet been added to the undergraduate calendar. AFM 132 will count as CFM degree requirements.


For questions related to co-op that are not available on our website, please reach out to a Math Co-op Advisor for more information.
