The UWaterloo Important Dates is a guide for the University of Waterloo students to know semester start dates, registration dates, add/drop dates, holidays, reading weeks, exam dates, other important academic dates, and deadlines.

At the University of Waterloo, the academic year is divided into three terms, each lasting four months. The Fall semester is from September to December, the Winter semester is from January to April, and the Spring semester is from May to August. There are about 12 weeks of classes followed by roughly two or three weeks of exams.

Students who are in 1.5 units or more are considered full-time students at Uwaterloo. Anything between 0.25-1.25 is considered part-time. Students registered with AccessAbility Services may be considered full-time with a minimum of 1.0 units.
