Academic Performance & Awards

Academic Honors (UG)

The academic honors are bestowed to students to recognize their outstanding academic attainment both on a continuous basis and upon graduation.

Dean’s List

Undergraduate students will be placed on the Dean’s List at the end of the regular Fall and Spring Terms when in that term: (i) their TGA is at least 3.7 calculated from at least 12 credits registered, (ii) they have not failed any course, and (iii) they have not committed any confirmed act of academic dishonesty.

The award will be presented to these students in the form of a letter issued from the Dean of the School concerned and be recorded on the student's transcripts.

Academic Achievement Medal

The Academic Achievement Medal is awarded to outstanding graduates in the year of their graduation. To be considered as a recipient of the award, students must have:

  1. Failed no course during their studies at HKUST; and

  2. Achieved a final cumulative grade average (CGA) of at least 3.9, with at least 60 HKUST credits included in the calculation.

Students may be awarded only one Academic Achievement Medal.
