The list includes all matriculated students who, in that semester, have maintained an average of 3.60 or higher in a program of study of at least 12 graded units. In order to qualify, a student must not have been assigned any grades of incomplete or N. If a program of only 8-11 units per term is taken, the required average is 3.70, and all of the units must be graded.
Notes: Grade point averages are carried to two decimal places and are not rounded off. In addition, only seniors in their final semester may enroll for fewer than 12 points at Stern. All other Stern students must be enrolled for 12-18 points.
Honor Key: Students named to the Dean’s List three consecutive terms during their first two years in residence at Stern (summer sessions are included if enrolled for a minimum of 12 graded points) are awarded the distinction of Honor Key, which is noted on their transcript.
Graduation with Honors: Distinguished academic achievement is recognized by the awarding of degrees with the following distinctions. Information regarding how these distinctions are determined can be found on the University’s Registrar’s website.
Beta Gamma Sigma: Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is the national honorary society of collegiate schools of business and has 119 chapters throughout the country. Membership in the society is open to juniors whose grade point average places them in the upper 7% of their class and to seniors whose grade point average places them in the upper 10% percent of their class.
To be eligible for membership in BGS, a student must have completed at least 60 points while matriculated at the college for which he or she received a letter grade (a grade of pass is not acceptable). All courses that appear on the body of the Stern transcript and that fulfill the Stern academic program requirements will be used in computing this grade point average. Students are notified of their eligibility to join BGS based on their cumulative GPA in the spring semester of their junior or senior years and are invited to attend an initiation ceremony, typically held in May.
