Thomas Edison State University recently unveiled the President’s List and President’s Award honor programs to officially acknowledge academic excellence in its enrolled students. The programs represent the highest academic honors that the University bestows and the distinction allows President Dr. Merodie A. Hancock to personally acknowledge and celebrate TESU students’ academic success with the entire University community.

“These academic honors provide an opportunity to showcase our students’ extraordinary accomplishments in maintaining high GPAs while also juggling numerous responsibilities in their careers, communities and family lives,” said Dr. Merodie A. Hancock.

The President’s List is a distinction given to undergraduate students who take at least six graded credits and receive a 4.0 grade point average in at least two courses within a given term. Students qualifying for the President’s List will be recognized in TESU’s publications and on its website and social media feeds. Students who qualify for the President’s List four times, and have a cumulative GPA of 4.0 overall, will be eligible for the President’s Award.

The President’s Award is the highest academic award bestowed on undergraduate and graduate program students who maintain a superior level of academic performance over the course of four or more terms at TESU. In addition to acknowledgement in TESU’s publications and on its website and social media feeds, students receiving the President’s Award will be recognized during their respective Commencement ceremonies with a special honor cord and notation in the Commencement Program.
