Instructions for transfer students

Transferring from another institution

If you’re transferring to the University of Waterloo from another university, you may need to change the fall-term schedule that has been prearranged for you depending on the transfer credits you are awarded. Contact one of your academic advisors for assistance with choosing your courses and updating your fall schedule.

If you were expecting transfer credits and did not receive a Transfer Credit Letter, then the assessment of your transfer credits may have been delayed. It’s likely that we need more information about your past coursework to make a final assessment. For information about the status of your transfer credit evaluation, contact one of your academic advisors.

Transferring from another program at Waterloo

Prior to your first term, you'll be sent an individual course sequence via email. It's important that you follow this sequence to complete your degree requirements. You'll be required to select both your required and elective courses using Quest. If you need assistance, please contact one of your academic advisors.
