Reading your Program/Academic Evaluation
Your Program/Academic Evaluation is a personalized evaluation which lists all degree requirements including those you have completed, those you are currently taking, and those you still need to take. This tool can be very helpful in determining your remaining requirements. It is recommended you review your Program/Academic Evaluation often.
To view your Program/Academic Evaluation, log on to WebAdvisor and click on "Students Menu". From the menu on the right hand side select "Program/Academic Evaluation" under "Academic Profile". Choose your Active Program by selecting the radio button. You can leave the other options as the default. Click on "Submit" to have WebAdvisor create your up-to-date evaluation.
For tips on how to review your Program/Academic Evaluation:
Name (and Student ID)
Program - The correct and proper title of your degree: Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences
Calendar - really important - as this is the Undergraduate Calendar Schedule of Studies which we are using to assess your degree requirements. You cannot change this without the permission of your Program Counsellor.
There is a note that says substitutions or exemptions are not recorded on this evaluation. Keep record of approval of any substitutions or exemptions.
Program Status - This is a count of credits - towards 20.0 credit minimum. All other program rules must be followed. Co-op students should refer to the note below *.
BSES Distribution Requirements
First - a list of courses you CANNOT use for your degree.
1000 level limit - Maximum number of courses/credits you can use at the 1000 level is 7.0 credits.
3000/4000 level limit - Minimum 6.0 credits (WebAdvisor stops counting at 6.0).
BSES Core Requirements - This is what all BSc(Env) students take - first year and core. If you think you have had a substitution approved, find an email that says so. No email, no approval, then talk to your Program Counsellor.
BSES.XXXX Required Courses - XXXX signifies the major you have declared. There are specific course codes listed, some groups or choices of courses, and some restricted electives - all dependent of your major.
BSES.XXXX Restricted Electives - This section keeps track of your progress toward fulfilling the restricted elective counts for your major. Refer to your Schedule of Studies for more detail on how many restricted electives you need.
* BScEnv CO-OP Course and Work Terms - In order to be eligible to graduate, your academic credits must total least 20.00. Any co-op term completed in S19 and beyond will require the addition of 0.50 credits to the 20.00 academic credits required to graduate (i.e. if you complete your first co-op work term in W20 and follow the sequence of co-op terms outlined in your schedule of studies, you will require at least 21.50 credits to graduate).
OTHER COURSES - All courses not used for any rule above (don't forget - some electives will not be listed here because they fit into the 1000 or 3000/4000 level rule). There will be electives here, failed courses (if you have any), or additional courses - beyond the "required" ones. IF A COURSE HAS BEEN APPROVED INDIVIDUALLY AS A SUBSTITUTION or AS A RESTRICTED ELECTIVE, it may be listed here. If you think there are courses listed here that should be listed as a requirement, contact your Program Counsellor.
