Ethics and Academic Citizenship Requirement

All graduate students at the University of Alberta, regardless of their field of study, are required to fulfill the Faculty of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies Ethics and Academic Citizenship Requirement.

To satisfy this requirement, all incoming graduate students entering their program in Fall 2022 and onwards, will be automatically registered in INT D 710 in their first term.

As per the University of Alberta Calendar, “If a student does not complete the above noted courses by the end of their first term of registration in their degree program, their registration in subsequent terms will be restricted until such time as the course(s) is completed and/or a plan for completion is submitted by the student to the Faculty of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies. Note: GPS will send students reminders to complete the requirement prior to the end of their first term (if not completed already)."

For students who started prior to Fall 2022 and who completed the online GET course prior to August 31, 2022, please email your GET course certificate to the Graduate Advisor at, for it to be added to your student file.
