  • must be an official Students’ Union-registered student group

Each of the following may only be counted once for CIL credit, to a maximum of 5 points.

3) Attend approved co-curricular events (points vary)

Can I submit an event for consideration?

Students can submit co-curricular events that they think should qualify for points to cil@ualberta.ca

Requests must include the name of the sponsoring organization and a web link or event description. 

Suggestions should be submitted well in advance of the event and, if approved, will be added to this list.
