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.
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.
Candidates for honors with their baccalaureate degree must have earned at least 50 graded hours at UND. Honors will be awarded on the basis of the student’s UND grade point average.

Honor Medallions are earned by candidates for the bachelor's degree who have at least 50 graded hours from the the University of North Dakota and achieve a scholastic average of 3.50 (cum laude), 3.70 (magna cum laude), and 3.90 (summa cum laude) in courses completed at the University of North Dakota. For the purpose of the commencement program and publication, honors are based on the UND grade point average at the end of the previously completed term. Once final semester grades are recorded and the degree has been cleared by the college, grade point averages are recalculated and final graduation honors are recorded on the transcript and diploma.
