The GSA is a corporation established under the province's Post-Secondary Learning Act as the official representative body for more than 7,500 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.
