How do I transfer from another Ontario university?
Applicants will need to provide both a high school transcript and interim transcripts from their current university.
You will also need to meet the minimum admission requirements.
To be eligible, you will need to meet the minimum average for continuing in the program to which you have applied (normally a 65% average, higher averages may be required for some programs, including co-op versions)
Once you have been admitted as a transfer student, we will review your courses in which you have greater than 60% for possible transfer credit (Note: it is a good idea to include course descriptions as part of your post-application package). We will be looking at courses that are relevant to you new program at University of Waterloo and for which we have an equivalent course.
Important: the maximum number of transfer credits you can have is two years towards your University of Waterloo degree.
