Transfer into BBA/BCS Double Degree

The BBA/BCS Double Degree program is direct-entry only. Students interested in this program must apply (or reapply if already a current UW student) as outlined in our "Future Undergraduates: Apply|Admissions" page. 

However, students already in the BBA/BMath Double Degree program can change their BMath into BCS transfering into CS. More information can be found here:https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/current-undergraduate-students/cstransfer


Transfer out of BBA/BCS Double Degree 

First, discuss your plan to transfer to BCS single degree with the BBA/BCS DD advisor to confirm whether this is the right decision for you. Note that returning to BBA/BCS from BCS single degree is not possible after the paperwork has been processed.
