We're here to help you succeed

We believe success looks different to everyone and there isn’t one right answer. We're here to help you find your way. 

The Student Success Offices provides academic and personal development services, resources for international students, as well as study abroad and exchange support. We work closely with campus partners to create a vibrant experience for students from their first days at Waterloo, right to convocation. 

  1. July 29, 2019Scam alert - Automated telephone calls

    Please be aware of an ongoing phone scam targeting international students and newcomers. Across Canada, people are receiving automated phone calls from individuals claiming to be from the Chinese embassy/consulate. These calls incorrectly tell recipients that they've been implicated in a crime, involved in a fraud investigation, or have a parcel that needs to be picked up. Recipients are instructed to pay money to the caller and/or to isolate from friends and families, go into hiding, and not answer phone calls.

  2. June 25, 2019Know the facts about laws on cannabis

    A reminder that even though cannabis was legalized for adults in Canada, this is not the case in almost all other countries. Learn what you should consider during your studies at Waterloo and when studying, travelling, or working abroad.

  3. June 3, 2019Post-graduation work permit application updates
    Post-graduation work permit application updates.

    As of February 14, 2019, the post-graduation work permit application requires the official completion of studies letter and official transcripts, which are both obtained from The Centre in Needles Hall. If you have already applied for the post-graduation work permit after this date without including both documents, and have not received your post-graduation work permit yet, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has recommended that you upload the missing document to the IRCC web form.
