- Have your award document reissued under the name of Ryerson University (applies to All alumni who graduated from Ryerson Institute of Technology, Ryerson Polytechnical Institute or Ryerson Polytechnic University).
An Amended document is regarded as an original award document which will reflect the updated degree designation and/ or program name.
