Dean’s List

Each semester, CLA students are recognized for high academic achievement by being placed on the CLA Dean’s List. A memo is placed on their transcript indicating this achievement. To be eligible for this honor, students must have a 3.50 minimum term GPA and 12 graded credits. Incompletes, Ns, and Fs disqualify a student from eligibility.

Latin Honors

At UMD, a maximum of 15 percent of the graduating class can graduate with honors. In CLA, the top 3 percent of the graduating class is designated summa cum laude, the next 5 percent magna cum laude, and the next 7 percent cum laude. The GPAs are based on those of the previous spring semester’s graduating class. To be eligible for honors, students must earn at least 30 credits at UMD. For more information, contact the CLA Advising & Academic Services.

The Honors Policy, applicable to fall 2013-summer 2014 undergraduates, is as follows:
