President's Honor Roll

Academically outstanding students are recognized each semester through the publication of the President's Honor Roll. Based on semester GPA, approximately 30 percent of all undergraduates are so recognized. The GPA required to be on the President's Honor Roll varies each semester. To be eligible, students must have grades, exclusive of pass/fail and satisfactory/fail, in a total of 12 or more semester hours and must not have any grade of F. Undergraduates enrolled in four-year bachelor's degree programs are always eligible for the Honor Roll. Students enrolled in five-year bachelor's/master's programs are eligible only during their first eight semesters.
