How do I get on the Dean's List or President's List?

The Dean’s & President’s List is a way for students to be recognized for academic achievement within a given semester.

To get on the University of Guam’s Dean List, students must complete at least 12 credit hours that carry letter grades only (i.e. A, B, C, D) and earn a GPA of 3.50 – 3.99 or better, with no grade less than a B.

To get on the University of Guam’s President List undergraduate students must complete at least 12 credit hours and achieve a GPA of 4.0.

What is a registration hold?

A hold is a restriction placed on a student's account.

A hold prevents students from registering for any upcoming terms or from receiving any official documents from the University such as transcripts or their diploma. 

How do I get a registration hold lifted?

Students can get a hold lifted from their accounts by paying off their balance or requesting an agreement with the Bursar's Office to have the hold removed.

Students can prevent holds by paying their balances by the due date

Are there specific individuals at the Bursar's Office that can work with me?

The cashier in the Bursar's Office deals specifically with student payments. The other staff, which include Account Tech's and the Bursar Supervisor, assist with student inquiries and or concerns.  

If I'm on a Time Option Payment Plan (TOPP), am I able to register for classes during my scheduled plan?

All charges have to be cleared prior to registration. The last payment on the TOPP must be made prior to Open Registration. Students cannot participate in Early Registration, however, if they are on TOPP and still have a balance.

How do I create a resume if I don't have work experience?

A functional resume is a resume format that focuses on highlighting skills and qualifications instead of work experience. Your abilities are grouped under various skill sections, such as “Summary of Qualifications” and “Professional Skills,” where you explain what it is you can do. The goal of a functional style resume is to show the employer that you have the skills to get the job done, even if you lack work experience.
