Awards and Honors

Dean's List   To be eligible for the Dean's List of Distinguished Students, at the end of each semester, students must take a minimum of 15 credits and achieve a current grade point average of 3.4 or higher without failure in any course. Courses taken on a CR/NC basis may not be counted toward the 15-credit minimum. Any student receiving an F, NC, IN or NG during the semester is not eligible to be on the dean's list.

Intermediate Honors   Students who enter the University directly from high school or preparatory school and who, after four regular semesters have completed 56 credits of course work and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4, are awarded a Certificate of Intermediate Honors. The notation "intermediate honors" is also placed on each student's official academic record.
