Spring 2014 NSERC USRAs for Co-op Students

CS Deadline for co-op USRA:  January 10, 2013

USRA applications for a spring co-op work term should be completed on the NSERC web site by January 10th. Deadline is more flexible for non co-op students. Email Margaret Towell at  if you are working on an application.

You will need a supervisor who has a research project you can work on.  Talk to some profs who are working in research areas of interest to you by checking out the bios and web pages of people in those areas:

NSERC USRA application forms:

When you have found a supervisor who has a project and they are willing to take you on, login to the online Form 202 Part 1 for students. Please upload your unofficial transcript as not doing so will delay the application.

For instructions and details on the NSERC Undergraduate Research Student procedure, please see the GSO  web page for links and information about the NSERC USRA at:

Eligibility to hold a USRA:
  • Cdn and PR students 
  • must have completed at least one year of undergraduate study

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
