Instructions for registering for courses can be found on the Graduate Studies website.
With the approval of your supervisor(s) and departmental Associate Chair, Graduate Studies, students can enrol in courses in one of three categories:
Any changes to your course registration, including dropping/adding a course or changing a course’s status to credit/audit/extra, should be made before the course registration deadline. Most changes before the deadline can be done through Quest.
Courses with your Supervisor(s)
You can take no more than one half of your course requirements, as listed in the University of Waterloo Graduate Calendar, with your supervisor(s).
For example, if you have to take three courses for your PhD, only one can be with your supervisor(s). As a MASc student you may need to take four courses; in that case, a maximum of two courses could be with your supervisor(s).
Please contact your department coordinator if you have questions about this.
