Local students earn UNC degrees, Dean's List recognition for Fall 2012
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
More than 950 students earned bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral or professional degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during the December 16 commencement ceremony.
Out of 988 students who received a degree, 568 earned a bachelor’s, 275 earned a master’s, 131 earned a doctoral degree and 14 earned a professional degree.
In addition, 6,484 Carolina students were recognized for outstanding academic achievement through their selection for the Dean’s List for Fall 2012.
Dean’s list recognition requires full-time students who enter the University as new first-year students starting in fall 2010 or thereafter to earn at least a 3.5 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale with no grade lower than a “C” for 12 hours of letter-grade credit. Students who enrolled before fall 2010 must post a 3.2 grade-point average for 15 hours of letter-grade credit or a 3.5 for 12 hours of credit. No grade can be lower than a “C.” (See http://registrar.unc.edu/reports/deanslistdegreerecipientlist/index.htm for details.)
