Next steps in becoming a Waterloo student

  2. If you plan to live in residence, submit your Residence Community Ranking Form and residence deposit by 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 3.
  3. Meet the conditions listed on your Offer of Admission.

If you haven't submitted your Admission Information Form (AIF), you should still do so because some scholarships are awarded based on the AIF.
