Canadian Excellence


By registering and paying fees, students assume responsibility for understanding and abiding by the regulations and procedures included in this Calendar. Moreover, it is the students' responsibility to establish and maintain communication with their faculty advisor or thesis supervisor.

To ensure that students receive accurate and official interpretations of regulations, or information about program requirements, all questions should be addressed to the graduate officer/program director/program co-ordinator in the home department, school, or faculty.

All master's and doctoral students must register for three terms each year commencing approximately September 1, January 1, and May 1. Full-time Waterloo Lutheran Seminary diploma and master's students must maintain continuous yearly registration of at least two terms each year; all Doctor of Ministry students must register for three terms each year commencing September 1, January 1, and May 1. Registration dates for WLU students are outlined in the academic schedule section of this calendar.

Candidates who fail to maintain continuous registration will be required to withdraw from the program unless they have been granted inactive status or a leave.

No defence will be scheduled or held without registration being completed prior to the proposed date of the defence.
