Student Achievement

Honors, Dean’s, and President’s Lists

These lists are computed twice yearly, in the spring at the end of the third session, and in the fall, at the end of the sixth session. Students must have completed at least 18 credits during the previous three sessions. Students who have incomplete grades are not eligible for these honors.

  • Students with grade point averages of 3.5 to 3.74 are placed on the Honors List.
  • Students with grade point average of 3.75 to 3.99 are placed on the Dean’s List.
  • Students with grade point averages of 4.00 are placed on the President’s List.

GPAs are calculated for the courses taken during the previous three sessions. They are not cumulative grade averages. A new group of honors students is determined at the end of each six-month period.

We are proud of our Dean’s List and Honor’s List students for the 2019-2020 Academic year.

Giulia Greig MBA-ITM

Giulia Geas Greig is a French citizen born and raised in the United Kingdom. At the age of 18, she moved to Washington, DC where she received her undergraduate degree and later her graduate degree from University of the Potomac where she studied Business Administration in Information Technology. Over the course of her studies, Giulia developed a few tools to achieve good grades as well as maintain a busy schedule, she states that prioritizing her work load through the use of organizational structures was a huge key to her success. She made sure to annotate her personal schedule with all requirements, projects, and assignments expected of her to avoid forgetting or overlooking any of them. Additionally, Giulia encourages students to utilize University of the Potomac’s staff and professors as a support system. She recommends the following “don’t be afraid to email them with any questions, support, help you might need guidance on”. Ultimately, a good communication with anyone from the academics department can make a world of a difference as they are here for you and willing to provide you with the best learning experience they are able to.

Kelly Halferty - MBA Geospatial Intelligence

Kelly Halferty serves as a Special Assistant in the Office of the Chairman at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  He manages a myriad of programs that supports the daily operations of the Chairman, the Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, Managing Executive, and other staff members.  Mr. Halferty joined the SEC in 2013, previously serving as a Program Support Specialist in the Division of Corporation Finance and Office of Human Resources. Prior to joining the SEC, Mr. Halferty served 22 years in the United States Air Force, retiring in 2012.

Geospatial information and intelligence are essential in today’s business sector.  When properly utilized, business owners realize increased market share and competitive advantages over their rivals. Additionally, GIS is also heavily used for many government applications. At the SEC, I utilized GIS to research the effects of the accredited investor rule on the population of the United States. I found that less than 1 percent of American citizens meet the criteria outlined in Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 to be considered an Accredited Investor.
