Dean’s List

For each fall and spring semester, the Dean’s List will include any student who completes at least 9 credit hours during the semester and who achieves a semester GPA of 3.30 or higher.   No Dean’s List is determined for Maymester.   However, the Dean’s List for the Summer term will include any student who completes at least 9 combined hours of Maymester and Summer courses and who achieves a GPA of 3.30 or higher for those courses.  For a student in this category, the designation “Dean’s List” will appear after the Summer session grades on the student’s transcript.
