EDGE milestone eligibility

If you've already successfully completed several courses or terms at the University of Waterloo, you may be eligible for select EDGE milestones based on your academic history. You can start to plan your journey through EDGE by reviewing the following milestone opportunities.

Please keep in mind that the table below is meant to serve as an overview of potential milestone opportunities. It shouldn't be used for robust planning. When you register for EDGE, your transcript will be reviewed by the EDGE team for potential equivalencies. The EDGE team has the ability to make whatever decision they see fit regarding your milestone eligibility.

Your academic history may not perfectly align with the milestone opportunities outlined in the table below. If you have any questions about your eligibility for EDGE milestones, contact us at edge@uwaterloo.ca.

All students

EDGE credit may be given for the Skills identification and articulation workshop or the Career development course milestones. Please see our listing of past skills identification and articulation and career development courses by term to see if previous courses may count towards these milestones.  

A listing of the skills identification and articulation and career development courses for the current term can be found on the EDGE courses page.
