Universities and Summer School Courses?

How do universities take pre-requisites taken in summer-school?

My situation is that i plan to apply to Software Engineering at Waterloo and i need chemistry (SCH4U), so i plan to take it in summer school this year. Is there any penalty in doing so?

I think it should be fine.. as long as it's not math or something, you should be fine..

They might adjust your entrance average. The Faculty of Mathematics is the only place at UW that changes things for non-day school courses. Even though Soft. Eng. is engineering it is offerred jointly with the Faculty of Mathematics. They also only say that they MAY meaning they don't have to. I would assume that if your summer school mark is relatively close to your other(day school) marks then it probably won't make a difference.

I know that summer school isn't private - but it is also clearly listed under the "non-day school" courses section of the link I posted.

Alos, UW admissions probably won't get back to you for a little while because they are still busy with acceptances for this year.
