UCO ANNOUNCES SPRING 2013 HONOR ROLL STUDENTS
The University of Central Oklahoma recently announced the students named to the university's honor rolls, a distinction given to those who achieve the highest academic standards.
For the spring 2013 semester, 1,058 students made the President's Honor Roll, an honor achieved by those who recorded a "straight-A" or 4.0 GPA.
Additionally, 1,639 students made the Dean's Honor Roll, a list of those who achieved a 3.5 GPA or better for the semester, and no grade lower than a B.
Students on either the President’s or Dean’s lists must complete at least 12 hours of on-campus class credit for the semester. Correspondence credit is not included in determining those included on the honor rolls.
Ideally located just north of Oklahoma City in Edmond, Okla., Central is the state's largest metropolitan university, serving more than 17,000 students pursuing degrees in 116 undergraduate and 59 graduate major areas of study and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Central prides itself as a smart investment for success, preparing future leaders in an opportunity-rich environment, with access to more than 200 student organizations and the internship, employment, entertainment and cultural offerings of the rapidly growing Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
Founded as a teachers' college in 1890, Central considers itself an institution where teaching comes first, and, with a 19:1 student/faculty ratio, students can enjoy personal relationships with faculty and staff who are committed to transforming lives.
