Advising Handbook

Dean's List

Following the close of the fall and spring semesters, a list is issued of students whose academic achievement warrants notation on the dean’s list.

To be placed on the dean’s list, a student must have:

  • An overall semester grade point average (GPA) of 3.4
  • Completed 16 or more credit hours, at least 12 of which have normal letter grades (A through E), with 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.

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. 

Part-Time Students

Part-time students can be named to the dean’s list by:

  • Achieving a 3.4 GPA in the immediately preceding semester
  • Completing 16 credit hours with a GPA of 3.4 during the preceding 24 months (including summer grades)*

Once named to the Dean’s List, students must complete an additional 16 credits according to the criteria noted above, before being named to the Dean’s List again.

*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.

Records and Notification

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. Students also receive a letter from the dean of the College.
