For both degree and non-degree courses, a student with excellent grades in all academic subjects shall receive recognition through inclusion in the publication of the Honors List at the end of every semester of each school year. To qualify for the Honors List, a student should meet the following criteria:
- academic load must be at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the total units as prescribed in the curriculum during the semester (e.g. must not drop any subject prescribed in the curriculum);
- no grade lower than 2.50 in any academic subject;
- must have passed NSTP, and INTRO subjects; and
- must not have been given the sanction of suspension
Students who get a GPA of 3.50 qualify for First Honors and those with GPA of 3.00-3.49 qualify for Second Honors.
The Honors List is prepared by the OUR and furnishes all College Deans a copy. The list is posted on the college bulletin board. Certificates of Recognition are sent to the respective colleges.
