11. Distinguished Students (Revised: 1992)

Revision to Rule 11 approved on 4/08/05 by Faculty Senate and signed by the President on 7/8/05. This rule change is effective 8/30/05.

 

An undergraduate student who completes a semester schedule of at least 15 hours or a summer session schedule of at least 12 hours with no grade lower than C and with a grade point ratio of not less than 3.25 for the semester or for a summer session shall be designated “distinguished student.” A student who, under the same circumstances, achieves a grade point ratio of at least 3.75 also shall be designated as a member of the “dean’s honor roll.” First semester freshmen must complete a semester schedule of at least 12 hours with no grade lower than a “C,” no Q-drops and with a grade point ratio of not less than 3.25 for “distinguished student” designation and a 3.75 for “dean’s honor roll.” Official notification of these designations will be issued to the student by the dean of the student’s college. The hours earned on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis shall not be included in determining minimum hours required for the designation of “distinguished student” or “dean’s honor roll.” A grade of I disqualifies a student from being considered as a “distinguished student” or for the “dean’s honor roll.” Only undergraduate courses or graduate courses used for the undergraduate degree will be used in either honors calculation.
