If your concern is regarding the recent changes the University of Waterloo has made to the Winter 2020 term due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please stand by. Solutions are still formulating university-wide and we should have more information starting March 18th.

Otherwise, your question(s) may be answered on the 2016-2017 calendar changes or policies and resources pages. Please make sure you have your Watcard during your visit. We do not conduct advising over the phone due to confidentiality policies.

Course overrides
Please follow the department's course override policy

Email advising
Please use your @uwaterloo email account and include your 8-digit student ID number. Do NOT send multiple emails on the same subject, as it will delay the response to your question. If your question needs to be addressed by a different person, we will forward it accordingly.

Plan modification and sequence change forms
You can email your signed form(s) to, or drop off in person to Becky Moore in HH 213. Forms can take approximately 2-3 weeks to be processed through all academic departments and the Registrar's Office. Forms may take longer if we are waiting for end of term grades to be posted.
