When completing their Application to Graduate, students may request that the word "Bachelor" be replaced with the gender-neutral term "Baccalaureate" on their diploma. This option is available for all applicable undergraduate degrees offered by the University of Waterloo.
Graduates who have previously been awarded a Waterloo degree may request that their degree be re-issued in the gender-neutral nomenclature.
The term "Baccalaureate" will only appear on the diploma. Transcripts and any degree verification will only refer to "Bachelor". This terminology discrepancy between documents may result in border-crossing issues.
