Application Form

Application for Student Membership (Online)

Outcome

Once you have completed the online application, you will be assigned an ID number and sent a temporary password along with instructions on how to login to your online profile. You will receive a student member card in the mail approximately two weeks after your application is submitted.

Renewal

Student memberships need to be renewed annually. Please login to your profile and renew online. The online student renewal is available from August to November. If you require assistance, please contact the Student Member Coordinator. See Renewal for details.

Reinstatement

If your membership has lapsed and you would like to reinstate please login to your member profile and follow the prompts to reinstate. If you have forgotten your ID number, or don't have access to the e-mail on file any longer, please e-mail the Student Member Coordinator. Note that the Student Program is for undergraduate students only.

Claiming Pre-Graduation Work Experience

Students can claim for professional experience gained through summer or co-op employment, however, only time earned at least half-way through your degree (at least 58 credit hours completed) will be credited.

  1. Be an active Student member; by submitting an application or renewing your existing membership
  2. Login to the Member's website; your ID number is on your Student Membership card
  3. Submit Progress Reports detailing your contributions and experience
    • Note: Before your first report will be reviewed, you must provide proof that you were at least half-way through your undergraduate degree before the start of the reporting period.
    • Submit these two documents to the Director of Admissions as proof:

      1. Pre-Grad Course Mapping (PDF), and
      2. Academic Registration History (Transcripts) with your name on it
    • You only need to submit this documentation once for verification
    • Also, split your reports according to continuous stretches of employment or supervision. For example, if you worked a 4-month term, then report the four months, but if you worked for 6 or 8 months straight, submit one longer, more detailed report. Similarly, if you changed Supervisors in a term, split your reports according to supervisor since there is only place for one supervisor to comment on the report, and they should not comment on work with which they are not familiar
    • Reports that are a copy and paste from previous reports will be REJECTED
  4. After you submit a Progress Report, and your Supervisor and possible Mentor have submitted their comments, and we have verified that you have obtained at least 58 credit hours towards your undergraduate degree, your report will become eligible for review at an Experience Review Committee (ERC) meeting
  5. Your report will be assigned to a volunteer P.Eng. or P.Geo. reviewer with a similar discipline as you. This assignment depends on the availability and existing case load of these volunteer reviewers
  6. After review, feedback will be provided through your online profile
  7. You can contact the Director of Admissions if you need assistance

'Paper' progress reports will no longer be accepted; Students must submit their reports online.
