President's and Dean's Lists

The President’s List recognizes the top three percent of undergraduate students within each division registered for a semester of 12 or more credit hours attempted for grades (A+ through F). The Deans’ Lists recognize the next 17 percent of undergraduate students within each division registered for a semester of 12 or more hours attempted for grades (A+ through F). 

Students within each academic division must achieve
the following grade point averages:
Division President's List GPA Dean's List GPA
College of Arts and Science 4.00 3.70
College of Creative Arts 4.00 3.70
College of Education, Health, and Society 4.00 3.80
College of Engineering and Computing 4.00 3.60
College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science 4.00 3.60
Farmer School of Business 3.95 3.60

The grade point standards used for the President’s List and the Dean’s List approximate the average GPA of highest 3 percent of students in each academic division and the next 17 percent of student in each academic division, respectively, for the past three years. These criteria will remain unchanged.

Miami’s news and communications office notifies the hometown newspaper of each student eligible for the President’s or Deans’ Lists. Note that a confidentiality hold on a student’s record will prevent his or her name from being published in the hometown newspaper or on the Miami University website. President’s and Deans' lists are considered finalized 30 days after the term.

Note: Undergraduate students in non-degree programs who meet these same criteria will be included in the College of Arts and Science calculations.
