The University of Ottawa is proud to announce that 280 Gee-Gees student-athletes achieved an annual grade point average of 8.0 or higher during the 2019-20 academic year. Of those, 101 are U SPORTS Academic All-Canadians competing on varsity teams.
The Academic All-Canadians have been celebrated nationally since 1988 and the award is a nationally recognized distinction. The RSEQ, OUA, and uOttawa have also created Academic Merit programs to recognize those who compete at the conference or non-conference level on Varsity Club or Competitive Sport Club teams.
For 2019-20, 24 members of uOttawa's three varsity clubs and 157 student-athletes from competitive sport clubs achieved Academic Merit.
The group of 280 includes nine medical students, 37 graduate students, and two undergraduate students who achieved perfect 10.0 AGPAs. 97 of the undergraduate students achieved a GPA of 9.0 or higher.
The 101 U SPORTS Academic All-Canadians is the highest annual total in uOttawa history. A complete list of 2019-2020 U SPORTS Academic All-Canadians is available here.
