The term "clearing" means that the approved replacement course is taken and passed and then removed from the accumulative failure course count. For more information see Examinations and Promotions in the Academic Undergraduate calendar.

*These courses are available through the Centre for Extended Learning (online) at the University of Waterloo or the other university website. A Letter of Permission form must be submitted and approved for courses being cleared at another university. The application deadline for Athabasca University is the tenth of the month in order to start the following month.

Students may seek approval for clearing courses not listed by providing the First Year Engineering Office with a detailed course description of the course you wish to take from another university.
