2. For Waterloo campus studies, there is ONE waiting area unless otherwise stated in study posting. It is located in front of the Psychology Main Office (N2006) in the Science Building (Click here for map). The researcher will meet you there at the specified time. The only exception is for Waterloo studies conducted at the Northdale Campus. If the study is being conducted at Northdale Campus, this will be stated in the study description and you must go there directly (Click here for map). It is your responsibility to note the correct study location and show up to the appropriate location. For Brantford campus studies, go to the location indicated when you sign up for study.

7. Important for all ON-LINE, BRANTFORD, and SECOND-YEAR classes: The number of required credits shown on PREP (this system) is NOT the number of required credits for your course (see this message or your course outline). If you are enrolled in PS101OC or PS102 OC (on-line) then your PREP requirement is 3 credits. If you are enrolled in PS101BR or PS102BR then 3 credits are required. If you are enrolled in any second-year class then 2 credits are required for full bonus marks.
