This page contains important dates and deadlines for engineering and architecture applicants, as well as timing for our September 2021 offers of admission.

Offers of admission

Ontario secondary school students

If you’re an Ontario high school student and you confirm an offer from another Ontario university before you receive ours, you still have until June 1, 2021 to amend your decision and accept a later offer, without penalty.  No Ontario University may require a financial commitment from you before June 1, 2021.

If you receive an offer from a university outside Ontario with an earlier deadline, please inform us by contacting Mirjana Radulovic, Associate Director, Engineering Admissions.

All other applicants

Applicants not currently attending an Ontario high school have until June 1, 2021 to respond to an offer from Waterloo.  Other universities may require you to make a financial commitment to them prior to this date, so read your offers of admission carefully before accepting.
