College to university pathways

Some college programs have pathway agreements with specific Waterloo programs. Transfer credits will be awarded for courses in which a minimum grade of B- (70%) has been achieved, unless noted below.

The transfer credits outlined below apply only to the articulated pathway. If you're admitted to one of the programs below and then transfer to a different program at Waterloo, admission and transfer credits will be re-assessed and transfer credits may be reduced.

No agreement? No problem!

More than 90% of incoming Waterloo transfer students transfer without a pathway agreement. Search our admission requirements to learn about transfer credit for your program of interest or email myapplication@uwaterloo.ca if you have questions.
