How do I drop classes?

If you're an undergraduate student, you can't drop your last class from your schedule. That is, if you only have one class on your schedule and you want to drop it, you'll have to complete an undergraduate notice of withdrawal form and submit it to the Registrar's Office so that you can be withdrawn from your course.

Exception: If you're on a co-op work term and you want to drop your last or only class from your schedule, you'll have to complete a course override form and submit it to the Registrar's Office to drop the class for you or send an email to quest@uwaterloo.ca asking that the course be dropped from your schedule.
