Admission requirements and procedures for all programs are described "Admissions" of this calendar.
Most students are admitted directly from secondary school. However, students who are enrolled in another faculty in the University of Waterloo, or at another university, may apply to transfer to the Faculty of Mathematics. Applicants should have strong academic records. (See "Faculty Policies" for additional policies concerning transfer students and transfer credits.) In addition, a student who has been away from formal education for more than two years may apply as a mature student. We encourage, and sometimes require, these applicants to re-do some Math courses, since time away can have a negative impact on one's performance in the discipline.
