Outstanding academic achievement among college students is recognized every semester with the publication of the honor roll and through awarding of Certificates of Academic Excellence. To qualify for honor, a student must meet have a semestral weighted grade point average (GPA) of 1.00 – 1.25 to belong to the President’s List and 1.26 – 1.75 to belong to the Dean’s List.

A total of one hundred twenty-nine (129) college students were recognized as Academic Scholars last January 16-17, 2013 at the University Theater. These students received a Certificate of Recognition as honor students and a Certificate of Scholarship as academic scholars enjoying a 100% tuition discount.

The University President, Dr. Arlyn S. Villanueva challenged the scholars in her message during the academic recognition saying: As our academic scholars, you owe it to the University to fulfill your potential for professional success, to rise to the occasion when your responsible leadership is called upon, and to express your gratitude and prove your loyalty to the University that has given you so much. You can do this by defending its reputation against those who will try to besmirch it. After all, an alma mater with a solid and untainted reputation will work to your advantage when you seek employment, especially with companies that put a lot of emphasis on reputable universities.
