Class Rank Policy
To be ranked, a student must have:
- completed thirty (30) credit hours at the Duncan School of Law;
- completed all first-year required courses as indicated in section XII.G.1 herein; and
- been enrolled in at least one course in the ranking semester.
For purposes of Interim Class Ranking, student ranking groups will be established based upon credit hours successfully completed. At the end of the fall and spring semesters, students shall be ranked within the following groups:
Group I: 30-44 completed credit hours
Group II: 45-66 completed credit hours
Group III: 67-88+ completed credit hours
A student’s Graduation Class Rank, based upon the student’s official final cumulative grade point average, will be the only rank that appears on a student’s official transcript. The Graduation Class Rank will rank all students that have graduated since the Graduation Class Rank was last calculated. The Graduation Class Rank will be calculated on June 15 of each year and will reflect on each graduating student’s official transcript within a reasonable time thereafter.
Dean's List Policy
To be named to the Dean’s List, a student must have:
a 3.250 grade point average, in any spring or fall semester in which the student has successfully completed a minimum of 9 credit hours.
The Associate Dean for Academics, or a designee, shall promulgate the Dean’s List, for the Dean’s review and approval, after all student grades for each spring and fall semester have been entered.
