Dean’s List

After the close of every semester, the deans of the schools/colleges publish on the Dean’s List the names of full- time matriculated students who have done outstanding work during the semester. Undergraduate students completing all courses with a GPA of 3.4, with no grades lower than “C,” qualify for the Dean’s List. In order to be eligible for the Dean’s List, students must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 undergraduate credits. Students who receive a grade of “I,” “WD,” “NR”, “RR” or “IW” or “NA” or “NSA” or “FSA” in a semester are disqualified from Dean’s List eligibility for that semester. Students who are ungraded in a course are ineligible for Dean’s List consideration until such time as they are fully graded.

Graduation Honors

Honors citations are awarded in connection with the granting of the bachelor’s degree. Honors awards are computed on the basis of all Seton Hall undergraduate credits earned by the student through the semester in which the degree is granted. The Office of the Registrar determines eligibility for graduation honors. In computing these honors the grade point system is used. Honors are awarded only to students who meet the following GPA requirements and have a minimum of 60 earned Seton Hall undergraduate credits:

Honor GPA requirement
Cum Laude (with honors) 3.395-3.594
Magna Cum Laude (with high honors) 3.595-3.894
Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors) 3.895-4.000

Transfer Student Honors

Transfer students are awarded honors only on the basis of course work taken at Seton Hall; transfer students must complete a minimum of 60 undergraduate credits in residence by graduation in order to qualify for graduation honors.
