Apply to graduate

In order to graduate, you must meet various criteria with the Faculty of Engineering. A useful tool to make certain is the Minerva Degree Evaluation tool.

In order to graduate, all engineering undergraduates must
  • Achieve a minimum cGPA of 2.00
  • Verify with a departmental advisor you have/will meet the program requirements
  • Verify personal information on Minerva, including name, home & mailing address, phone number, course listing & grades, and degree information (program/minor/option)
  • Verify any advanced credits / exemptions are listed
  • Verify graduation term is indicated on your unofficial transcript

Once all of this information is correct, you're ready to apply to graduate on Minerva
