Before you begin the application process for graduation, check your Program/Academic Evaluation found on WebAdvisor. Use our tips Program/Academic Evaluation to help you read your Program/Academic Evaluation. Check that you have completed the necessary requirements for the B.Sc.(Env.) degree as follows:

  • Successfully completed a minimum of 20.00 credits 
  • Have a Continuation of Study status “Eligible to Continue” or a Cumulative Average of 60.00% or above
  • Have taken no more than the maximum 7.0 credits at the 1000 level
  • Have taken no less than the minimum of 6.0 credits at the 3000/4000 level
  • Have completed all core required courses as listed in the Schedule of Studies in the appropriate Undergraduate Calendar
  • Have completed all required courses for your major
  • Have completed all restricted electives required for your major

If the answer is no to any of the above, review the exceptions and details below. If you still have questions, then book an appointment to review your Program/Academic Evaluation with your Program Counsellor.

We use the following exceptions and details when assessing the above criteria, so confirm that you have the following:

  • Be sure your Program/Academic Evaluation follows the Schedule of Studies in the appropriate Undergraduate Calendar i.e. the calendar that was in effect the fall semester you started the B.Sc.(Env.) program unless this was otherwise approved by your Program Counsellor. All calendar changes must be approved by your Program Counsellor. In cases where there are discrepancies between the Program/Academic Evaluation and the Undergraduate Calendar Schedule of Studies, follow the Undergraduate Calendar’s information. Your calendar year is stated on your Program/Academic Evaluation.
  • Be sure that your major is officially declared on your Program/Academic Evaluation.
  • Make sure you have the required paperwork or correspondence from your Program Counsellor (for core courses), or your Program Counsellor and your Faculty Advisor for your major (for courses required for your major) granting substitution approval of any course requirements (if applicable). Individual substitutions (and some generic substitutions) are not recorded on your Program/Academic Evaluation on WebAdvisor, so you need to keep track of these approvals in your own records. Approval may be a listserv email from your Program Counsellor that gives general information on substitutions. 
  • Be sure to pay all University debt. You will not be permitted to graduate if you have any outstanding fines or fees such as Library fines.

Graduation Application

You will receive a personalized email from the Registrar's Office with information about graduation applications, deadlines, and fees when you have met the minimum number of credits (20.0 credits) required to apply for graduation. These credits may or may not be the appropriate credits required for your degree, so it is recommended that you read through the details above and below before you proceed with the official application process.

After Applications have been Submitted

After a student applies for graduation and after the 40th class day (the last day to drop courses for that semester) your Program/Academic Evaluations are printed by the Registrar's Office and sent to your Program Counsellor. Graduation Application evaluations are assessed by your Program Counsellor and Faculty Advisor to determine your eligibility to graduate. You may fall into one of three categories: "Eligible to Graduate", "Tentative Graduation" (need to successfully complete courses in progress), or "Not Eligible to Graduate". This decision is then returned to the Registrar's Office. Students who have applied, but are not eligible to graduate will be contacted by the B.Sc.(Env.) Program Counsellor as well as the Registrar’s Office by email.
