Dean's List

Following the close of the fall and spring semesters, a list is issued of those students whose academic achievement warrants notation on the Dean’s List. These guidelines apply to all students in the College:

An overall semester grade-point average of 3.4 and completion of 16 or more credit hours, at least 12 of which have normal letter grades (A through E), with no “I” or “N” grades, are required for a student to be named to the Dean’s List.  (Seniors and students classified as Take Five need to complete successfully 12 or more credit hours with normal letter grades and no “I” or “N” grades.)  A student who has an incomplete grade on his or her record becomes eligible to be considered for the Dean’s List once the final grade is submitted.

Part-time students can be named to the Dean’s List by achieving a 3.4 grade-point average in the immediately preceding semester if they have also completed 16 credit hours with a grade-point average of 3.4 during the preceding 24 months (including summer grades).  At least 12 of the 16 hours must be completed with normal letter grades, and the student must have no outstanding “I” or “N” grades.

Notation of Dean’s List standing is made on the grade report and on the official record (transcript).  Students receive a letter from the Dean of The College and the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
