Anonymous said: As a prospective Honours Arts and Business Student, is it possible to declare your major before first year starts? I already know what I'd like to major in and I was just wondering if I could start my major in first year. Thank you!

Hello,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to declare your major before your first year starts. It is nice to see you eager to declare your major, but the requirements of getting into your prospective major include being in your 2A term which is gained by having 4.00 to 6.99 credits. For more information on declaring your major please visit: http://bit.ly/1qqrubx

Hope this helps!

If this is your first co-op there may be a chance that Google lists a job posting for the HR department, but if you are very particular about a job at Google you could always try to arrange your own job. In this case please follow the instructions posted at this link: http://bit.ly/1mKql40

Anonymous said: Could I combine urban planning with arts and business?

Unfortunately, the arts and business program cannot be combined with your urban planning as it is a separate program. Alternatively, if you are looking to incorporate something like the arts and business I would recommend look into possibly pursuing the Management Studies Minor/ Diploma. This minor, similar to the arts and business program, should allow you to receive the 25/24 hours of project management courses that are required for the CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management). For more information on the minor, feel free to contact Geoff Malleck as he is the undergraduate advisor for the minor.

Hope this information helps you out!

Maybe you are one of those people who signs up for a bunch of clubs. Here is a quick tip you can do with your email to help manage those mass emails:
When adding your email ex. johnsmith@gmail.com add the extension +clubs ie. johnsmith+clubs@gmail.com. Though you add the +clubs the email will still send to johnsmith@gmail.com! 
Why add +clubs? With the extension you can now go to your email settings, and select the Filters tab. From the Filters tab you can “Create a new filter” and add your email with the +clubs ex. johnsmith+clubs@gmail.com to the To section, and following you can then select create a filter which you can then mark emails as read, star them, or label them (possibly create a new label for clubs).
Now whenever you register to a club with your email+clubs,you can manage them better.
Other uses: Shopping sign ups, Job interviews, etc.Source: http://lifehacker.com/144397/instant-disposable-gmail-addresses

We appreciate your question, and we would like to direct you to our Recruitment Coordinator, Nga Tran, at n2tran@uwaterloo.ca for more information regarding these transfer credits.

Anonymous said: Will I be accepted with an 80-83% average I'm nervous about getting the marks in my grade 12 year! Any tips

Hi there,

It’s dependent on which program you’re wanting to pursue here at Waterloo. I can say with reasonable confidence that you would be accepted with something in the low eighties to Honors Arts or Arts and Business. AFM has more strict requirements grade-wise. But still try to get the best marks you can get!

Hope that helps!

Hi there,

Fees vary depending on the residence that you live in, as well as the meal plan you choose. First year for Arts and Business is somewhere in the range of $3000-3200 per term.

You can see the specifics of residence costs here: https://uwaterloo.ca/find-out-more/financing/fees
