To earn consideration for the Athletic Director's Honor Roll, a student-athlete must have earned a minimum 3.20 grade-point average during the 2013 fall semester. In years past, the standard was 3.0 but was raised last year to encourage student-athletes to achieve at a higher level in the classroom.

To be named to the Dean's List, the undergraduate must have earned a minimum 3.50 GPA for the semester and be enrolled as a full-time student.

The Upper Iowa University Athletic Department will recognize 179 student-athletes who earned a spot on the Athletic Director's Honor Roll on Friday, Jan. 24 between the men's and women's basketball games against Concorida University, St. Paul.

"These awards confirm our belief that academic-achievement and graduation is the number one reason why our student-athletes are here at Upper Iowa University," said David Miller, UIU Director of Athletics. "This is a testament to the coaches here, and the quality of character in the student-athletes they recruit."
