Dean's List and Graduation Requirements

Dean's List For Scholastic Achievement

Each academic year students who have attained a grade point average of 3.25 or above are placed on the "Dean's List". A reception sponsored by the Dean and Omicron Kappa Upsilon is given to appropriately recognize this achievement.

Requirements for Graduation

To qualify for the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, the student:

  • Must have satisfactorily completed all required courses of the curriculum, including the didactic, laboratory, clinical and practical courses, to the satisfaction of the faculty. An overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 (on a scale of 4.00) is required for graduation
  • Must have satisfactorily completed all required comprehensive examinations
  • Must have performed in a reasonable and professional manner
  • Must have been enrolled in the College of Dentistry for all the senior year
  • Must have discharged all financial and administrative obligations to the University

Graduation with Honors

All graduates of the College of Dentistry who attain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 or better qualify for the designation of graduation with "honors". Students with cumulative grade point averages of 3.50 and above qualify for the designation of graduation with "high honors". Accordingly, the College confers to the graduate(s) with the cumulative grade point average of 3.75 and above, the distinction of graduation with "highest honors."
