Recognition by the University

Northern Arizona recognizes students with outstanding academic records in the following ways.

Dean's List

The Dean's List is awarded to undergraduate students each Fall and Spring term that have earned a grade point average of 3.5 or higher in at least 12 graded units.

Latin Honors

Baccalaureate Latin Honors are designated on commencement programs, diplomas, and transcripts to recognize outstanding academic achievement by graduating students in relation to their peers' achievement.

Baccalaureate Latin Honors are granted to undergraduate candidates who:

  • Successfully complete 30 or more units of credit earned from enrollment at Northern Arizona University; and
  • Have an exemplary grade point average (GPA) meeting the GPA thresholds set for the college owning the student’s primary plan for their degree.

Baccalaureate Honors designations that appear beside student names in commencement programs are provisional until all final grades are reported and the student’s degree is conferred.
