Dean's Honour Roll

The words 'Dean's Honour Roll' will be placed on your transcript if you meet the following conditions:

  • pass all courses
  • achieve an average of 80% or greater on all percentage-graded courses taken during the winter session (September to April).
  • be registered in a minimum of 27 credits of percentage-graded courses within the session.1 
1 If you're a Co-op student and you're registered at UBC for only one term in the winter session because of a Co-op placement, you must be in 15 percentage-graded credits for that term to be eligible. If you participate in an exchange program, your grades earned while on exchange will be included in the calculation.

Degree with Honours

The words 'with Honours' will be placed on your transcript and your degree certificate if you meet the following conditions:

  • achieve an average of 80% or greater on all senior-level (300 and 400-level) Commerce courses (COMM and COHR).1 Senior-level (300 and 400-level) CPSC courses are also included for students in the Combined Major in Business & Computer Science. The average is calculated to 2 decimal points and is not rounded.
  • be registered in at least 27 percentage-graded credits during the winter session in at least one of Year 3 or Year 4 of the program.2
1 If you were registered in Year 2 or above during the 2014 Winter Session, COMM 203 (COMM 392 equivalent), COMM 204 (COMM 399 equivalent), and COMM 205 (COMM 391 equivalent) will be included in the calculation of your average. If you were in Year 1 during the 2014 Winter Session and took any of COMM 391, COMM 392, COMM 399 during the 2015 Summer Session or prior, your grades for those courses will not be used to determine eligibility to achieve a Degree with Honours.
2 If you're a Co-op student and you're registered at UBC for only one term in the winter session because of a Co-op placement, you must be in 15 percentage-graded credits for that term to be eligible. If you participate in an exchange program, your grades earned while on exchange will be included in the calculation.

 

If you're unable to calculate your eligibility to achieve a Degree with Honours yourself, you can confirm your Honours status at the Undergraduate Office after May 15.
