Students who excel in their courses are named to the dean’s list at the end of each semester. In order to receive this distinction, students must be attending full time, complete a minimum of 12 semester credits and earn a GPA of 3.7 or above for the semester. Grade changes for the semester must be received in the Office of the Registrar no later than the last day of the first week of classes in the following semester or summer session to impact consideration for the dean’s list. Nominations to the dean’s list are made from each semester’s grades; they are not based on a cumulative GPA for the student’s college career. Students named to the dean’s list and their parents are notified by letter following each grading period.
