President’s Honor Roll

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 earned 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.

Dean’s List

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, based on the grade point average earned by students in UND coursework for the semester. 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 grades.
