We celebrate our students' academic achievements.

St. Edward's University has many ways in which we honor our high-achieving students.

Kappa Gamma Pi National Honor Society

Kappa Gamma Pi, National Catholic College Graduate Honor Society exemplifies excellence in leadership, scholarship, faith and service. To be eligible for membership, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above and have been enrolled at St. Edward's at least two years, completing 60 or more semester hours at St. Edward's with at least 30 of those hours graded. All undergraduate students who meet the minimum requirements for nomination will be contacted directly by the Office of Academic Affairs. 

If a student qualifies, she or he will be invited to submit an application to the Office of Academic Affairs, provide three references from faculty and/or staff, and complete an interview with a faculty or staff member at St. Edward's. Ideal candidates will have shown evidence of leadership and service within their university and community. 

Saint Catherine Medal

Sponsored by Kappa Gamma Pi, National Catholic College Graduate Honor Society, this annual award honors one student each academic year who represents the high ideals of a Catholic college education, demonstrates leadership, and serves the university or community in an extraordinary manner. Neither high academic achievement nor eligibility for membership in KGP is necessary.

During the first half of each spring semester, faculty and staff members are invited to nominate students to be considered for this award. The nominees will be asked to submit a personal statement and resume and these materials will be reviewed by a committee comprised of individuals from each school at St. Edward’s. One recipient will be chosen and the medal will be awarded during Undergraduate Honors Night at the end of the spring semester.
