GPSG Student Association (GSA’s, formerly GAG’s)

GPSG’s Student Associations are recognized student organizations who are funded annually by GPSG. They provide a voice for their students on the GPSG Assembly Board, representing the interests of graduate and professional student cultural groups at Pitt. Each GSA is allowed one official representative, and this person retains voting privileges at the AB Meetings. GSA’s provide programming open to all graduate students at Pitt, and they also provide various services for their students (such as transportation from the airport and help finding housing for international students arriving in the United States). Please follow the individual links for more information on recognized graduate student organizations.

GSA’s must renew their status with GPSG each year. In order to do that, each group, as well as any new graduate groups that wish to apply for GSA status, must meet the criteria outlined in the Application and Annual Re-Application for GPSG Student Association Status form. These forms are due to the GPSG Finance Officer no later than the last day of each financial year (the last day of June). All applications and re-applications will be considered at that time, and must be approved through a majority vote of the Assembly Board.
