Outstanding Graduate Award

The Arizona State Alumni Association presents the Outstanding Graduate Award to the outstanding graduate in each college. Individual colleges make the selection of one recipient per college. The award is presented in the name of the Alumni Association during the colleges' honors convocations. The Alumni Association has established the following guidelines:

The student selected must:

  • have a minimum GPA of 3.25
  • complete the requirements for his or her undergraduate or graduate degree during the 2016-2017 academic year and no later than May 2017.
  • attend University Undergraduate Commencement
  • college extracurricular activities considered
  • community activities considered

Please note that only an undergraduate student is eligible for this award and only one student may be selected from each college.  The selected student must graduate in the 2016-2017 academic year and complete his or her degree by May 2017.

Each college, through the dean or the selection committee, may determine more specific criteria for judging the outstanding graduate, as long as they do not conflict with the criteria listed above.  Please forward a copy of any additional criteria instituted by your college when you submit your Outstanding Graduate to us.
