Riddell Faculty students are encouraged to declare a grad date as early as possible, and to come to the Dean's Office, 440 Wallace, to have a Student Advisor review your graduation requirements.
Q: I just received an email from the convocation office regrading what my parchment will say and it doesn't have co-op on it!
A: The convocation office only verifies your degree - which is i.e Bachelor of Environmental Studies, Bachelor of Environmental Science or Bachelor of Science in Physical Geography (Major or Honours). The cooperative education option is part of your program, i.e. Environmental Studies (Major Co-op). The parchment will note the cooperative education option underneath the degree name in a second line. If you are unsure if your program is correct, contact a Student Advisor in the Faculty Dean's Office.
Applying to Graduate
Every candidate for a degree, diploma or certificate must make a formal application at the beginning of the session in which they expect to complete graduation requirements, before the last date of the registration revision period.

(Log into Aurora, select “Enrolment and Academic Records”, select “Declarations”, and follow the instructions. If the date you wish to graduate does not appear, you will need to contact a Student Advisor in the Dean's Office, 440 Wallace, for assistance.; you may have missed the online application deadline).
The deadline date for declaring your intention is the end of the revision period in the term in which you expect to complete your courses. For example:
