Dean's List and President's Honor Roll
The Dean's List, published at the end of each semester, contains the names of students who are ranked in the top 15 percent of their college. The students must have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours at the close of the semester, eight of which must be for traditional letter grade. The minimum Term GPA needed to receive the award will vary from semester to semester.
At the end of each semester, a list of undergraduate honor students is published and designated as the President's Honor Roll. To qualify, a student must have a cumulative UND grade point average of 3.80 or higher. The student must also have a minimum of 24 semester hours at UND and have completed a minimum of 12 hours at the close of the semester, eight of which must be for traditional letter grades. The President's Honor Roll is noted on the student's official transcript.
It is possible for a student to make the President's Honor Roll and not the Dean's List. This happens because, the Dean's List is based on the student's performance for that particular semester only. The President's Honor Roll is based on a Cumulative GPA (3.80) once a student has earned 24 or more semester hours (credits) as well as the minimum number of credits required for the semester (12 total with 8 being for letter grade).
