The University of Illinois has named 5,366 Dean’s List and 259 Bronze Tablet honorees and graduates for the 2016 spring semester. A list of this year’s graduates is available at

The Dean’s List recognizes the top twenty percent of students by class or curriculum. Students must have completed at least 14 academic semester hours to qualify.

University Honors and Bronze Tablet induction are the University’s highest honor for graduating students. Honorees are in the top three percent of their college and have a total grade-point average of at least 3.5. In past years, a grade point average of at least 3.9 was needed to make the list in some colleges.
