A few ways to get prepared for your first term at UWaterloo is to select your courses, enrol in them, and familiarize yourself with the planning tools to help you along the way.
If you have questions along the way make sure to contact the Science Undergraduate Office.
Course Planning Resources
As a first year Science student, your academic advisors have selected most, if not all, of your required courses for you. The required courses page will inform you about what courses you will be taking in the Fall and Winter terms, and if you have electives. If your program has an elective component, you will need to select this course. If your program does not list an elective component, you will still need to review the required courses on your Quest to ensure successful course selection. It is important that you read the Notes under your listed program as there may be recommended electives.
- Read the required courses page and know your courses for your program.
- Log in to Quest.
- Match required courses and those already selected on Quest.
- If applicable, select your elective(s) on Quest.
