Congratulations on Your Accomplishments!
The University of Arizona supports academic achievement and is pleased to recognize and reward undergraduate students whose performance merits special attention.
Honors are bestowed in recognition of outstanding academic achievement and as a means to further encourage sound scholarship. They are awarded to every undergraduate student attaining the required proficiency. For some awards, students also receive certificates.
Three categories of Dean’s List are awarded every semester based on units completed for credit and letter grade (excluding Pass/Fail and Superior/Pass grades). Incomplete grades must be made up before the honor is bestowed.
Dean’s List with Distinction – 15 units and a 4.00 grade-point-average
Dean’s List – 15 units and a grade-point average of 3.50-3.99
Honorable Mention – 12 units of 3.50 and above grade-point-average
