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.

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.

CS 493/494 are the courses for you! Beginning in Fall 2018, CS majors will be able to take a two-course sequence that will take you from project ideation and selection to implementation and demonstration, to testing and a final “demo day”. Projects may range from new software systems, to contribute to existing open-source projects, to research projects. This will all be completed with a team of 3-5 members.
The first prize of $15K has been generously donated by CS alumnus, Sam Pasupalak, and the second prize of $10K has been provided by Microsoft. Prizes will be awarded as part of Demo Day at the end of CS 494.
