Full-time undergraduate students who demonstrate academic excellence by earning a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.600 while completing a minimum of 15 or more UB credit hours, of which 12 are graded (A – F) credits, are named to the Dean’s List at the end of each semester. Only courses taken for undergraduate credit are used to determine Dean’s List. Courses taken at other institutions, including those taken through SUNY or WNY Consortium cross registration, will not be included in calculating for Dean's List. The GPA on record will be used for the determination of Dean’s List, no additional rounding will occur.
- Incompletes invalidate a Dean’s List award until satisfied, at which time the award may be assigned retroactively.
- Students in a professional baccalaureate program requiring at least 14 credit hours of specified courses in a semester are named to the Dean’s List if they complete the following:
- Earn a grade point average (GPA) of at least a 3.600 in all the student’s courses graded ‘A – F’ and a grade of ‘P’ in all required or elective courses graded ‘P/F’. The courses graded ‘A – F’ shall constitute at least 50% of the credit hours in which the student is enrolled for the semester.
Notifications are sent to qualifying students to their UB email accounts in January for the previous fall semester; June for the previous spring semester; and a Dean’s List notation appears on student transcripts.
