Course drop-add for Winter 2019 is now open!
Courses have been scheduled based on pre-registration. From now until the start of the term, you can drop-add courses in Quest.
- If you get a “department reserve” error when attempting to add a course, it’s likely that the course has a waiting list. You will not be able to add that course until the waiting list clears, around the start of the term.Waiting lists are only used to manage pre-registration, and we cannot add you to the waiting list. If you pre-registered for a course and didn’t get in, then you are already on the waiting list! If you didn’t pre-register, you will need to wait for the list to clear and department consent to be removed. You can find more information regarding the wait list here. The removal of department consent on a course will be posted on the CS Blog.
- We will not override you into any classes unless you meet the specific guidelines listed below (see special cases). We do not make exceptions to this rule!
- Engineers who wish to take CS courses must wait until the second week of the term. See the full FAQ 78 for guidelines.
- You can check the CS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) as your question may be answered there.
- For course enrolment questions, you can review the course selection page for information about access to courses, department consent, and waiting lists.
- You can attend our daily CS Advisor office hours from 2 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.
- You can contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If available, you can visit a CS advisor at DC 2136 (during the first three weeks of the term, a CS advisor will not be available outside office hours).
- To get in line to see a CS Advisor, go to https://oat.uwaterloo.ca/q/cs and log in. You'll get a "ticket" for your place in line.
- Continue to monitor that page for your position in the virtual line. You can also sit on the chairs in front of the TV monitor near DC 2136 and watch for your number to come up on the screen under an advisor's image.
- You will get a message saying that you're next in line. Wait outside the office when you receive this message.
- The webpage will update with the name of the advisor you have been assigned to see. Go to the office and see that advisor.
- If the line is full, you can try again the next business day. The line resets at 6 a.m. each morning.
