Academic Honors and Honorary Societies

Dean's List   To be placed on the Dean's List of Distinguished Students in any given semester, an undergraduate must maintain a minimum 12-credit course load 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 12-credit minimum. Any student receiving an F, NC, or NG during the semester is not eligible to be on the dean's list.

Graduation Honors   Students with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher will be recognized as graduating "with honors;" students with a grade point average of 3.75 or higher will be recognized as graduating "with high honors;" and students with a grade point average of 3.9 or higher will be recognized as graduating "with highest honors." Computation of grade point averages for the determination of honors is based on all standard letter-grade courses carried since the student has matriculated in the Curry School of Education. Students in the five-year Teacher Education Program may be eligible for dean's list through the College of Arts and Sciences (for B.A. and M.T.) or the Curry School (for B.S.Ed. in Physical Education).

Kappa Delta Pi   is an honor society in education founded in 1911, and the Eta Kappa Chapter of the University of Virginia was chartered in 1951. The constitution of the society reads as follows: "The purpose of Kappa Delta Pi shall be to encourage high professional, intellectual, and personal standards to recognize outstanding contributions to education. To this end it shall invite to membership such persons as exhibit commendable personal qualities, worthy educational ideals, and sound scholarship. It shall endeavor to maintain a high degree of professional fellowship among its members and to quicken professional growth by honoring achievement in educational work." Both male and female students are eligible for membership.
