Basis and Timing of Offers of Admission

The University of Waterloo anticipates making a relatively large number of offers of admission on a rolling basis beginning February 2006. In highly competitive programs, such as Engineering, Mathematics programs, and Software Engineering, most decisions will be made in late May. Admissions committees for these programs like to have more information, including updated grades and contest results, so that they can make fair and equitable decisions. Offers of residence and information about scholarships will accompany the offers of admission; scholarship decisions will be made in May.

All offers of admission and scholarship will be made no later than June 2, 2006, and applicants will have until June 12, 2006, to respond. Applicants who know that the University of Waterloo is the university that they wish to attend are encouraged to confirm as soon as an offer is received. Other universities may ask for a response by an earlier date; however, even if they have confirmed an offer before June 12, applicants have until June 12 to amend a decision and accept a later offer without penalty. No Ontario university may require a financial commitment from an applicant before June 12.

All conditional offers are contingent on the completion of all diploma requirements, including a final admission average of 70%. Some programs may specify other conditions, including higher final admission averages. Basic requirements are at least six Grade 12 U or M courses, which must include all required courses as specified for each program. EAE4U will be treated as equivalent to ENG4U.

Applicants who are not admitted to the program to which they have applied may be considered for admission to an alternate program in the same faculty, provided that they meet minimum admission requirements and places are available. Where a program is available in both co-op and regular, applicants who are not admitted to the co-op program will be considered automatically for either the corresponding regular program or another related program, provided places are available. In some programs, limited admission to co-op is also available in second year.

Alternate Offers: Specific alternate programs are listed at www.findoutmore.uwaterloo.ca/admissions/apply.htm.

Please Note: The admission averages are based on previous years' entering classes. They are affected by the number and quality of applicants and the space availability and hence will not be known until mid-May 2006. Other factors will be considered as well as grades.
