9. Honors and Dean's List
Criteria for Graduation with Honors: A student graduates: cum laude if that student’s average is equal to or greater than 3.25 but less than 3.50; magna cum laude if the average is equal to or greater than 3.50 but less than 3.75; and summa cum laude if the average is equal to or greater than 3.75. In addition to the minimum grade point average for graduation with honors, a student must have completed a minimum of 56 credits at the University at Albany, with 40 of those credits graded on an A-E basis.
Criteria for the Dean’s List: The Dean’s List is published every fall and spring semester. Criteria for receiving this honor vary according to whether students are full-time or part-time, freshman or non-freshmen, and whether they matriculated before Fall 1997. Details can be found in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
