More than 1,100 undergraduate students at the University of Iowa were named to the president’s list for the 2023 spring semester.

The president’s list was established in the fall of 1983 to recognize academic excellence.

University of Iowa undergraduates who achieve a grade point average (GPA; 4.0 is an A) of 4.0 in 12 semester hours or more of UI graded coursework and who have no “I” marks (incompletes) or “O” marks (no grade reported) on their records for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer session) are recognized by inclusion on the president’s list.

Courses offered on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U), pass/fail (P/F), or pass/nonpass (P/N) basis do not count toward graded credit for inclusion on the president’s list.

All UI students are assigned a personal Merit page during their first semester on campus. The UI uses Merit to recognize and promote outstanding student achievement, extracurricular activities, and graduation. Students have the ability to customize their Merit page with pictures; downloadable documents; and details about internships, externships, volunteer activities, leadership positions, study abroad experiences, and employment. 

Students also have the option to share achievements added to their Merit page on their personal social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Achievements posted to Merit pages by the UI are automatically shared with newspapers that serve the student’s hometown and with the counseling office of the high school from which the student graduated.
