Admissions

The Post-Secondary Learning Act of Alberta gives General Faculties Council (GFC) responsibility, subject to the authority of the Board of Governors, over "academic affairs" (section 26(1)) and over "standards and policies respecting the admission of persons to the university as students" (section 26(1)(n)). Further, the Post-Secondary Learning Act gives the Board of Governors authority over "admission requirements" (sections 60(1)(c) and (d)). The Board has delegated its authority over admission requirements to GFC. The Post-Secondary Learning Act of Alberta gives Faculty Councils power to “provide for the admission of students to the faculty” (29(1)(c)). The admission requirements for any Faculty is approved by GFC and published in the current edition of the University Calendar.

The responsibility for admissions decisions is vested in the Faculty Admission Committees or in the Deans of the respective Faculties, as the councils of such Faculties will determine. The responsibility for admission decisions for Open Studies remains in the Office of the Registrar and Student Awards.

The Office of the Registrar, as Chair of the original Admissions Committee, served as the first principle administrative entity responsible for admissions. As the university student body and administrative structure grew, responsibility for admissions was distributed through various faculties, the Senate, and the General Faculties Council. Until 1969, when authority was transferred to the newly created Secretariat's Office, the Registrar served as Secretary of the General Faculties Council, the principle oversight body for admissions. The Registrar remains an ex-officio member of this council and continues to supply policy advice and execute admissions policy for the University. The principal admissions activities include: liaison (high school and college), access, information distribution, orientation, application processing, document evaluation, and transfer credit.

The records in this series reflect the distributed authority of the admissions functions. Predominantly textual, the records consists of committee meeting minutes, interdepartmental correspondence, correspondence with student applicants, deliberation on policy formulation including research, consultation with other schools, and advice to councilors and high schools concerning matriculation and admission requirements.

Convocation

The Postsecondary Learning Act of Alberta gives General Faculties Council (GFC) responsibility, subject to the authority of the Board of Governors, over “academic affairs” (section 26(1)) and to “provide for the granting and conferring of degrees, other than honorary degrees” (Section 26(1)(f). The Postsecondary Learning Act lists, among the duties of the Chancellor, “to preside over all degree-conferring ceremonies of the university and confer the degrees” (Section 9(1)).

The responsibility of GFC to provide for the conferring of degrees has been delegated to the Office of the President. The President has established a Standing Committee on Convocation, the purpose of which is to deal with all matters pertaining to convocation ceremonies in accordance with established practice.

The Office of the Registrar and Student Awards, Academic Awards and Ceremonies Office, is responsible for organizing convocation ceremonies. Detailed administrative procedures for convocation will be stored in the official Convocation Procedures and Reference Manual, in the Academic Awards and Ceremonies office.

The convocation event requires the participation of a number of university offices. Faculties administer graduating requirements; the University of Alberta Senate's Honorary Degrees Committee chooses the honorees for honorary degrees and is composed of a broad representation from the community, including a mix of the President; representatives from the academic community including Deans and/or Professors; and representatives from the Support Staff, the Alumni Association, the Students' Union, the Graduate Students' Association and the general academic community. The Office of the Registrar is responsible to complete the list of graduates, provide information for graduates, produce graduation diplomas, coordinate the printing of graduation programs, compile convocation statistics, and ensure issuance of degree parchments. The Academic Awards and Ceremonies Office (A.W.C.O.) within the Registrar’s Office arranges and completes the required activities to produce the formal ceremonies. These activities are the predominant source for the records in this series. The records are substantially textual and in a loose chronological order based on the order in each accession.

Section 26(1) of the PSLA empowers GFC to provide for the preparation and publication of the university calendar. Technical matters relating to the printing and publication of the Calendar are delegated to the Registrar (GFC May 31, 1976). The Exams and Timetabling Division in the Office of the Registrar is responsible for delegated Calendar responsibilities.

Awards

The University Senate began to administer student awards in the first year of the school’s existence. The Senate reported in its second meeting in July 1908, that competition for the Scholarship Matriculation examination suffered from few matriculated students eligible to sit the exam. As a result, only one student, Mr. Charles F. Reilly of Calgary, wrote the exam and “accordingly” won the scholarship. The Senate requested the donors of the $100 scholarship continue to offer the award. The donors, A.W. Dougall, and University President Alexander Cameron Rutherford, agreed (Senate Minutes, vol. 0, p.38, U.A.A.). The Board of Governors first formally addressed administration of student awards on December 13th, 1918 when it passed a motion to appropriate $200 "from the University Fund for scholarship purposes." (BofG Minutes, vol. 0/17, p. 252, U.A.A.). The Registrar's Office was originally charged with administering bursaries and awards. In 1959-60 the Registrar ceased to be directly responsible for the administration of scholarships and bursaries. In that year the responsibility was transferred to the newly established Office of the Administration of Student Awards. Responsibility, as it concerns all students other than graduate students registered in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, for making rules and regulations respecting academic awards shall be delegated by General Faculties Council to the Executive Committee. (G.F.C. 02 DEC 1966). Responsibility for the administration of awards has been delegated to the Office of Student Awards in the Office of the Registrar. The series consists of documentation of student awards administered by the Office of the Registrar.
