Scholars Wall

Distinguished, Honor Roll, and Honors Program Students

A wall in the Jack K. Williams Library has been designated to honor Distinguished, Honor Roll, and Honors Program students for each previous academic year. Official notification of these designations will be issued to the student by the Vice President of Academic Operations. According to Texas A&M University at Galveston University Student Rules (Part I: Academic Rules, Section 11),

Distinguished students:

  • are undergraduate students

  • complete a semester schedule of at least 15 hours
    or a summer session schedule of at least 12 hours

  • with no grade lower than C for the semester or summer session

  • with a grade point ratio of not less than 3.5 for the semester or summer session

Dean's Honor Roll students:

  • under the same circumstances listed above

  • also achieve a grade point ratio of at least 3.75

First semester freshmen must complete a semester schedule of at least 15 hours with no grade lower than a “C,” no Q-drops and with a grade point ratio of not less than 3.5 for “distinguished student” designation and a 3.75 for “dean’s honor roll.”

The hours earned with a grade of S shall not be included in determining minimum hours required for the designation of "distinguished student" or "dean's honor roll." A grade of "I" or "U" disqualifies a student from being considered as a "distinguished student" or for the "dean's honor roll." Grades of Q, W, and NG may not be included in the 15 graded hours. Only undergraduate courses or graduate courses used for the undergraduate degree will be used in either honors calculation.
