SU Award for Excellence

Recognizing students who make outstanding contributions to the campus community.

Each year, the Students' Union will award one undergraduate student with its highest honour for excellence in curricular and extra-curricular activities while at the University of Alberta. This student will also be awarded two thousand five hundred dollars ($2500.00) by the Students' Union.

To qualify for this award, a student must:

  • Be in their graduating year.
  • Have attained a minimum grade point average of 3.5 in the most recent 60 credits completed prior to the current academic year.
  • Be involved in extra-curricular activities in the University and/or community.
  • Demonstrate an ability to work well with students, staff, and the general public.

In the event that counting the most recent 60 credits completed results in only a portion of an academic term being counted, all credits completed within that term will still be considered when calculating the grade point average.

The Committee's decision will be announced at the Students' Council meeting immediately following the selection of the winner. The Vice President (Academic) will also publish a press release announcing the winner.

The Students’ Union Award for Excellence consists of a two thousand five hundred dollar ($2500.00) monetary prize and personalized trophy.
