Academic advisors

The Science Undergraduate Office supports all first-year students as well as students in Honours Science and General Science. If you are in a departmental program, you will have different advisors who are available for course consultation and guidance after first year.

Undergraduate program advisors are here to help you manoeuvre your way through your undergraduate career at the University of Waterloo. They can provide course advice, help you plan your future terms and also help you prepare for life after graduation. They are also very aware of other resources to help you become as academically successful as you want to be.
