STORRS, Conn. -- More than 2,800 students at the University of Connecticut -- about 23 percent of the University's full-time students -- attained the Dean's List during the fall 2000 semester, UConn officials reported Monday. Two hundred twenty-one scored perfect 4.0 grade point averages.

The students represent 162 of Connecticut's 169 towns and cities, the New England states, New York and New Jersey, 28 other states and 10 countries. Overall, 2,873 of 12,756 eligible undergraduates made the prestigious list, including 592, or nearly 14 percent, of the freshman class. Of the 221 students with perfect 4.0 GPA's, 45 were freshmen.

To be included on the Dean's List at UConn, students must carry at least 12 credit hours, rank in the upper 25th percentile of students in the school or college they are enrolled in, and can have no lower than a "C" in any course. In some schools, the criteria are extremely tough, especially in the School of Pharmacy, where a 3.87 was required to attain the Dean's List, the School of Education, where a 3.8 was required, and the School of Allied Health Professions, where the cut-off last semester was 3.6.
