Delivery methods

Students wearing masks in classroom

The University of Waterloo plans to offer more in-person classes in fall 2021 than at any stage during the pandemic. You should anticipate, however, that not all your courses will be available in person. If you wish, it will be possible for you to study online in fall 2021 without having to come to campus.

During course selection between June 16- 22, you will be asked whether you plan to be on-campus or whether you plan to learn online. We understand that circumstances can change, and you may need to alter your plans in the future. This may be possible pending available space.

For your core math courses, they will be offered in the following modes of learning in fall 2021:

CS 115

  • Blended learning with online (lecture) and on-campus (tutorial) components
  • Online only
