Self Declaration of Indigenous Status

In partnership with the U of R Registrar's and Admissions Offices, the ta-tawâw Student Centre is providing all Indigenous students the opportunity to declare their Indigenous status which will benefit you and the University in the following ways:

  • Support your fellow Indigenous students by self-declaring so the ta-tawâw Student Centre and the U of R can help determine service needs based on accurate information on the number of Indigenous students enrolled.
  • Support the ta-tawâw Student Centre goals in providing culturally appropriate support, a service facility and a gathering place for Indigenous students.
  • Eligible to access a wide range of supports and services offered by the ta-tawâw Student Centre , including scholarships and bursaries available not only at the University, but within the community.

Students who would like to declare their Indigenous status are encouraged to do so by:

1. Logging onto UR Self Service then following the directions to enter  your 9-digit student number and password.
2. Clicking on the Personal Information Menu, then Update Canadian Indigenous/Aboriginal Status.
3. Updating status by choosing Status Indian, Metis, Inuit or Non-status Indian.
4. Logging out of UR Self Service.
