VIII. Associate Diploma Regulations and Procedures
Dean's Honours List (O.A.C.) / Director's Honours List (Colleges)
Effective Spring 1986, the University established a Dean's Honours List which has common criteria throughout all baccalaureate degree or Associate Diploma programs and which is recognized on students' transcripts. Prior to Spring 1986 colleges used different criteria and the designation was not recognized on transcripts. Effective Spring 1991 the Dean's Honours List procedures take into consideration the flexibility afforded to students by the semester system and its opportunities for alternating semesters of full-time and part-time study. Effective Fall 1996 the Dean's Honours List or Director's Honours List (Colleges) procedures were revised to include all undergraduate degree or diploma programs.
The Dean's Honours List (Guelph) or Director's Honours List (Colleges) will include:
Students who have consistently maintained a high average, but for whom a change in program, in part-time status in the graduating semester, or other anomalies have prevented placement on the Honours List, should consult the appropriate office about eligibility for the Honours List.
Students with a high level of academic achievement on exchange programs will be considered for the Honours List based on a recommendation to the appropriate Dean or Director from the exchange coordinator.
Note: The calculation of full-time and part-time status for students includes courses with credit (CRD) standing or pass (P) standing. These courses do not affect the calculation of the averages used to determine Honours. Within each period of consideration there must be at least one course with a numeric grade for a student to qualify for Honours List unless the student has been on exchange for that period.
