Dean's List and Academic Achievement Awards

The Dean’s List, posted at the end of each semester, honors those students who have completed more than 12 credits (may not include courses taken on a pass/fail basis) and achieved a GPA of 3.5 or better. Students receiving an incomplete or an “F” grade are ineligible for the Dean’s List that semester.

For students who achieve a GPA of 3.75 or better during their college careers, their degree is granted summa cum laude. For those with a GPA of 3.5 or better but less than 3.75, their degree is granted magna cum laude. For those with a GPA of 3.25 or better but less than 3.5, the degree is granted cum laude.

Upon the recommendation of individual academic departments, the Committee on Academic Standards confirms the recipients of all academic achievement awards.
