Each semester, the Dean's Commendation for Academic Excellence is awarded to students who have achieved outstanding results and who have shown strong commitment to their studies.

To be eligible for a Dean's Commendation for Academic Excellence, you must achieve a minimum semester GPA of 6.6.

Awards are managed and distributed by each of the University's six faculties.

Undergraduate, postgraduate coursework, honours, and study-abroad students are all eligible.

Students must either be:

  • enrolled full-time in Semester 1, Semester 2, or Summer Semester, or
  • enrolled part-time (at least 6 units in a calendar year). Part-time students may not have studied full-time for any portion of the year.

The award is listed on both your studies report and academic transcript. A letter of congratulations may also be sent by your faculty.

Students do not need to apply for the award.
