The GSA is a corporation established under the province’s Post-Secondary Learning Act (PSLA) as the official representative body for more than 7,000 graduate students at the University of Alberta.
All full- and part-time registered graduate students (including students in recognized joint graduate/undergraduate degree programs) who pay GSA membership fees are considered members of the GSA. As a member of the GSA, you can:
- Access GSA services
- Vote in all GSA elections
- Seek nominations to any of the GSA’s representative positions and
- Attend open sessions of GSA Council meetings as a non-voting observer.
