Students at the UNT Dallas College of Law do not receive an individual class rank. At the end of each semester and academic year, the Registrar calculates class ranking, which will be used for two purposes.
First, at the end of each academic year, the Registrar will publish the cumulative GPA that marks the following percentile bands: top 10%, top 25%, top 33%, and top 50%. Each of these levels is calculated for: (1) students classified as first-year students; (2) students classified as second-year students; and (3) students classified as third-year students.
Second, ranking may be used as necessary for academic honors such as membership in scholarly societies, or other prizes or activities that require a certain placement within a class.
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the College of Law may not disclose an individual student's location within the GPA percentile bands without the student’s written permission.
