Many people struggle with the academic aspects of university. If you are facing challenges, please know that you are not alone. Do not let shyness or embarrassment prevent you from getting help. It is not true that universities want or need to lose a certain percentage of students. In this faculty, “weeding out” is a myth. We want you to be successful. Many things, including those out of your control, can happen to make this difficult.
Please speak to your instructor and/or academic advisor if you are concerned about your undergraduate career in general or CS135 in particular.
The Faculty of Mathematics also has a list of services available to you.
Please do not suffer alone. We are here to help.
The School of Computer Science has a cohort of academic advisors to help guide you through the complexities of the CS academic program, including how to recover from failed courses and make the most of the advanced opportunities we offer.
There is also a Frequently Asked Questions list.
The Student Success Offices provides academic and personal development services, resources for international students, as well as study abroad and exchange support. They work closely with campus partners to create a vibrant experience for students from their first days at Waterloo, right to convocation.
If you or anyone you know experiences any academic stress, difficult life events, or feelings like anxiety or depression, we strongly encourage you to seek support.
The AccessAbility office is located in Needles Hall, Room 1401. It collaborates with all academic departments to arrange appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities without compromising the academic integrity of the curriculum. If you require academic accommodations to lessen the impact of your disability, please register with AccessAbility Services at the beginning of each academic term.
