KPE - External Student Awards

Alumni Gold Medals – Honours Programs

To qualify for the gold medal, a student must have:

a minimum GPA of 10.00 (A-) in the senior courses of the honours program.
a minimum cumulative GPA of 10.00 (A-).

Each faculty/school or affiliated university-college shall have one gold medal for each convocation period in which it has from 1 to 100 students receiving an honours degree, and an additional gold medal for each additional hundred undergraduate students receiving an honours degree during that convocation period. Thus, a faculty/school or affiliated university-college with 60 honours graduates in fall would be allotted one gold medal, and an undergraduate faculty/school or affiliate with 300 would receive three medals. Gold medals are awarded only to students in subject areas having at least one non-combination honours program, though the recipient may be in a combined honours program. If the subject area has both single and combined honours programs, the award is made to the student with the highest GPA in the senior courses in that subject's honours program, whether or not they are registered in a single or combined program.
