If you plan to be a full-time student, you'll apply through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC), which processes applications to each of Ontario's universities.

Within two weeks of receiving your application from the OUAC, we'll email you with your Waterloo student number and any actions you might need to take.

You can preview those steps by visiting our website for students who have applied.

Submitting your information through the OUAC streamlines the process of applying to Waterloo and other Ontario universities.

We recommend adding myapplication@uwaterloo.ca to your email contacts to ensure you receive our emails.

If you're interested in part-time or online studies, there is a separate application process.
