Information for

Repeated courses and non-day school courses

Repeated courses

  • For all programs, repeated courses may be reviewed during the admissions process.
  • When we calculate your admission average, we will use the highest Grade 12 U or M grade in a repeated subject.
  • On your Admission Information Form (AIF), you'll be asked to comment on repeated courses. We'll provide you with instructions about the AIF once you've applied to Waterloo.

Courses other than day school

As long as you take a course(s) at a school or institution accredited by the Ontario Ministry of Education, we will accept grade 12 U and M courses regardless of how or where the course is taken. The following are some examples.

  • Day school (high school)
  • Summer school
  • Night school
  • Correspondence courses
  • Private school
  • E-learning
  • Virtual learning courses

You may be asked to list the courses you have taken or are taking outside of regular day school on your Admission Information Form.
