Undergraduate Class Standing

A student’s class standing is based on the number of units a student has earned, including transfer credit accepted by the University of Arizona.

  • Freshman – 0-29 units
  • Sophomore – 30-59 units
  • Junior – 60-89 units
  • Senior – 90+ units

Full-Time Status

Full-time status for an undergraduate student varies with the college and study program, but ordinarily requires a load of at least 12 units per semester. Full-time status for graduate students is more widely variable, depending upon assistantship or associateship duties and the composition of the individual student’s program. Students in doubt about their standing should check with their college dean’s office.

Academic Distinction

The University of Arizona awards academic distinction honors, based on a student’s completion of certain academic success standards. This excludes all Pass/Fail (P/F) and Superior/Pass (S/P) grades. Semester awards are given when students have completed all course work for which they registered. Categories include:

  • Dean’s List with Distinction – 15 graded units with a semester grade point average of 4.0.
  • Dean’s List – 15 graded units with a semester grade point average of 3.5-3.999.
  • Honorable Mention – 12 graded units with a semester grade point average of 3.5 or higher.

Academic success is recognized each year at the College of Fine Arts’ Honors Convocation. Each year in October, academic-year awards are given when students have completed all course work for which they registered for and met the criteria above. Categories include:

  • Highest Academic Distinction – 30 graded units with an academic year grade point average of 4.0.
  • Academic Distinction – 30 graded units with an academic year grade point average of 3.5-3.999.

Academic Probation

Students who earned less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average are placed on academic probation. If a student has been on academic probation for two or more semesters, the student is subject to academic disqualification. Students who feel they are not performing well academically should see their academic advisor without delay.
