If you have taken a Waterloo course within the last 12 months, you may enrol in classes online through Quest. You'll know immediately whether or not your request was processed.
Readmission: University of Waterloo students who have been away from uWaterloo for more than one year or are returning after having been required to withdraw must apply for readmission. Students with satisfactory standing who are currently enrolled at Waterloo and want to request a program/plan change, must do so on a Plan Modification/Application for Internal Transfer form (Enrolment section of the Registrar's Office Forms site).
Note: To determine the class number - needed when enrolling online - check the Undergraduate Schedule of Classes, prior to logging onto Quest. Below is information on how to search for courses meeting certain criteria.
Waterloo students can log onto Quest. From the Student Centre, click on Academics, then Enroll which will take you to a Search for Classes function. Once inside the Class Search Criteria box, you'll see a button for Additional Search Criteria. Using that, you can look for courses that suit your needs. For example, search for courses offered at a certain time of day or for courses in a certain subject area.
To perform an Additional Search, you must select at least two criteria. For definitions of criterion, please see Quest's Glossary of Terms.
Note to Prospective Students: If you have never taken a course at Waterloo and you need help finding courses (e.g., those offered at a particular time of day, certain subject area), please contact Part-Time Studies; call 519-888-4002 or send an email message.
You may drop a class using Quest. However, if you are dropping all of your classes (withdrawing from the term), your request must be made in writing to the Office of the Registrar - fax, or mail the Undergraduate Notice of Withdrawal form (Enrolment section of the Registrar's Office Forms site).
Note: do not enclose your Withdrawal form with other materials – it can result in expensive delays.
For drop or withdrawal date ranges/deadlines, affecting your academic record and tuition refund, review the Important Dates chart.
Quest provides the option to ‘swap’ classes. This allows you to drop one class and enrol in another in a single transaction. The same deadlines for enrolling in/adding classes apply. Review the Important Dates chart.
