To qualify for inclusion on the President's Academic Honors List, a DSU undergraduate full-time student must meet the following guidelines:

  1. Students must have earned a minimum of 12 credit hours in courses numbered 100-699 during the term.
  2. Students must achieve a System Term GPA of at least 3.50.
  3. Students with F, I, U, RI, or RU grades in the term are not eligible regardless of System Term GPA attained.

Procedures

The Enrollment Services Office will generate a list of students meeting the qualifications for inclusion on the President's Academic Honors List at the end of the fall semester and again at the end of the spring semester. These lists will be furnished to the President's Office and letters of congratulations and certificates will be mailed to the qualified students.
