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 President’s, Dean’s, and Honors List students for the 2023 academic year:

Fiola Castelino

Fiola was born and raised in Muscat, Oman. She has always dreamed of studying abroad, especially in the U.S. Fiola graduated high school with a specialization in the commerce/business field. However, when it came down to choosing a college, she changed her major to the Arts. She said it was the best decision of her life as she was able to transfer to New York for the final year of her bachelor’s degree. She can proudly say she graduated with cum laude honors at the beginning of the pandemic (May 2020). After moving a little around the U.S., she settled in Virginia and decided it was time to get her Master’s degree. Once again, she was back in the business world pursuing an MBA degree but she kept a part of her interest in the Arts, so she chose to specialize in the Human Resources Management field. Fiola told us that University of the Potomac was not her first choice but it was definitely the best choice she made. Soon, she got her dream job at a well-known Satellite company and was given the opportunity to participate in the Executive MBA residential program. She felt honored to be the youngest student in the program and at work. She couldn’t have been more proud and grateful to be here at UOTP. Her advice to all current and future students is to start networking at the
very beginning of their career/university, never settle for less, and always strive to make their dreams come true.
