President's List and Deans' Lists

The President’s list and deans’ lists are announced after each semester of the academic year.  The President’s list includes the names of all undergraduate students who have satisfied certain other requirements and earned a grade-point average of 4.00.  The deans’ lists include those undergraduate students with similar qualifications in each college and school who have achieved a grade-point average of 3.50 and above.

After all colleges and schools have made their deans' and president's list determinations, the University distributes the names of the honored students to their hometown newspapers according to their mailing or recruiting address.  The list is sent to newspapers only one time each January for the preceding fall semester and one time each June for the preceding spring semester.

Students may be added to either list after its initial publication in some cases, such as when grades that originally were reported as "incomplete" subsequently change to a standard grade.  To the fullest extent possible, the Office of Student Records and Academic Information strives to keep this list as current as possible.

Note: For verification purposes, students that have requested non-disclosure of their directory information must submit a written request to the Office of Student Records and Academic Information before their deans' list or president's list honor can be published.
