The academic record is frozen once a student separates him/herself from the University.

Academic Name: The name on the official academic record is the name under which the student was enrolled during their last active term at the University.

Preferred Name: Students may add/edit their preferred name at any time. Please keep in mind that your preferred name will only display on class rosters, People Search, and email.

Class Ranking: The University of Virginia does not maintain class ranking.

Good Standing: The University of Virginia considers all currently enrolled students to be in good standing.

Grade Point Average

Grade point averages are computed and printed on the official transcript for undergraduate students only.

The University does not maintain major grade point averages (GPAs). To calculate the major GPA, multiply the number of credits for each included class by the grade point equivalent listed below and then divide the total grade points by the total credits (counting only the credits of courses taken for a letter grade).

Students Who Matriculated Fall 2018 (awarded in Fall 2020)

Intermediate Honors is awarded to the top twenty percent of those students in the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Architecture, School of Engineering and Applied Science, or School of Nursing who enter the University directly from high school or preparatory school and earn at least 60 credits of course work in their first four regular semesters. No more than twelve of the 60 required credits may be earned on a CR/NC or S/U basis. NO EXTERNAL CREDIT (e.g., Advanced placement, dual enrollment transfer credits, etc.) may count toward the required credits. Students will receive the notation of Intermediate Honors on their official transcript. In light of significant academic disruptions, the aforementioned eligibility criteria has been amended to exclude the spring 2020 semester from consideration. The required number of credits is reduced to 45 during the first three regular semesters. All other requirements remain the same.

Please note that Intermediate Honors will not be awarded in Fall 2021.
