Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

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.
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of:
  • enrollment capacity in a course **
  • a time conflict **
  • an academic enrolment block was applied after course selection
  • dropping or failing a course after course selection
** Please review more information under the Waiting lists section below.
2. Students who could not select courses because of:
  • a recent transfer to CS
  • their status as international exchange students
  • hospitalization
  • an S&P or ELPE decision or related academic matters
For Spring 2018, some courses have waiting lists and department consent has been placed on these courses. Waiting lists are only created when the number of students who course selected the course is greater than the number of spots in the course.
Spring 2018 courses with waiting lists:
  • CS 230
  • CS 240
  • CS 370
  • CS 446
  • CS 452
  • CS 454
  • CS 458
  • CS 486
  • CS 488
  • CS 489
  • CS 492
If you did course select any of the following courses but did not get enrolled then you have been placed on the waitlist for the course. You will be contacted at your uWaterloo email account if/when a spot becomes available for you. Available spots are offered based on random choice. Quest may show that there is space in the course but this is not accurate because the process is manual. There is no need to contact CS advisors as we will contact you when a place has become available for you.
No others students will be added to a waiting list. 
Students who want to be enrolled in waitlisted courses will need to wait until the waitlist is exhausted and department consent has been removed. A post will be made here on the CS blog when/if department consent is removed on one of the waitlisted courses. If you receive a message about department consent in Quest then this means that there is still a waiting list. 


  1. I'm glad to hear that, Data Science. Good luck to you. Blogging is a great thing, and you get better with practice. Data Science training in Hyderabad One of the best ways to grow is to read other people's blogs. See what they do, how they do things. It's always food for thought, and sometimes, it's downright inspiring.

  2. Educators ought to have direction and approach over their subjects and exercises like an English instructor should know how to train English paper and a math instructor should know how to instruct math on this site So let the understudies figure in what manner should instructors can approach distinctive subjects.

  3. Network principles and rights ought to be trailed by each individual from a network and for that we have to buckle down on network errands as well as on the grounds that by composing on various points a man can perform betterly as an individual from network.

  4. The blend of gases with unique extents gives us a fresh out of the plastic new type of fuel. it's far composed in submit which lets us know roughly gases and its combos in stunning sites and we get appropriate records around such innovation. I regularly do such issues for the comprehension on this control however I look at such articles first before doing any test.

Adding CS courses for Spring 2019

Courses have been scheduled based on pre-enrollment/course selection and you can now drop/add courses in Quest. Please read the following as they might apply to you, especially if you find that you are not able to enroll into certain courses.

I get a "department reserve" error, what do I do? OR I selected a course and wasn't enrolled into it, what do I do?
If you get a “department reserve” error when attempting to add a course, it’s likely that the course has a waiting list.

If you did not pre-register/course select for the course, then you will not be able to add that course until the waiting list clears (usually around the start of the term). Waiting lists are only used to manage pre-registration, and we cannot add you to the waiting list. 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 as well.
