Experts from Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA), Information System and Technology (IST), and points of contact from all faculties, have been hard at work to create a new graduate online application system, which successfully launched earlier today!!
Graduate student applicants will now apply through the University of Waterloo graduate online application system (powered by the CRM Slate), instead of the previous application interface, which relied on the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC).
The graduate online application system supports Waterloo’s strategic direction for graduate recruitment and allows for greater integration and control of the recruitment, application and admissions processes for future master’s and doctoral applicants. The online application launch is phase one of a multi-phase Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Transformation Project (GRATP), with ongoing improvements and new functionality forthcoming. The project team will continue to work on systems to support the marketing, communications, recruitment, and application processes, as well as to continue to provide superior services to all stakeholders. GSPA and IST are very grateful for the important and productive partnerships with faculty- and program-level colleagues; thank you for your collective support.
