Absolutely! Your hard-earned degree remains an accomplishment to celebrate and a credential worthy of promotion. The changing of the name of the university does not change your experience. For the last 73 years, the faculty and staff at the university have worked hard to provide an exceptional educational experience for students. The university's programs and graduates are recognized internationally for their innovative and career-ready approach. Potential employers will continue to recognize your degree for what it says about your skills, training and expertise, regardless of the name change. 

Alumni prior to 2022 will have two options regarding the award documents for their degrees, diplomas and certificates:

  1. Keep your existing parchments that reflect the university name when you graduated, or
  2. Once the name has been legally changed, request a reissue that will bear the new name.

Until the PDF fileRyerson University Act is amended by legislation (a process outside of the university’s control), all legally issued documents, including both new and reissued parchments, can only reflect the name “Ryerson University.” 

When the legal name change does take effect, those who would like their graduation award document (parchment) reissued with the new name will be able to request one. The instructions for making that request will be updated on the Curriculum Advising website. As is the case for all parchment reissue requests, standard printing and shipping fees will apply.  
Please note that once the university’s name is legally changed, replacement degrees with the name ‘Ryerson University’ will NOT be issued. Anyone wishing to replace a lost or damaged original degree with a reissue bearing the name Ryerson University must order it before the Ryerson University Act is changed.

The university has collaborated with LinkedIn to offer those who graduated prior to the renaming with the option to use either Ryerson University or the new university name when listing their education. For current alumni, Ryerson will be the default under their school information, but LinkedIn members will be able to switch manually to the new name a few days following the announcement. Further instructions will follow on the steps required to make this manual update.

All email addresses with the @ryerson.ca domain will remain for six months (or longer) after the announcement. When the switch to the new domain does take place, all those with an @ryerson.ca email will automatically have an email address with the new name. Advance notice will be provided before the change takes effect. Furthermore, an email forwarding service will be in place for several months after the domain name change to ensure that any emails sent to your @ryerson.ca address in error are forwarded to your new email address. Users will also be notified if/when the forwarding stops. Note: your username (what appears before @ryerson.ca in your email address) will remain the same.
