The President’s List and the Dean’s List recognize students for outstanding scholastic work. These lists are produced at the end of each semester — fall, spring and summer. Students who earned 12 or more credit hours of academic work, excluding college prep hours, or 12 vocational credits, and attained a grade point average of 4.0 for the semester will be placed on the President’s List. Students who earned 12 or more credit hours of academic work, excluding college prep credit hours, or 12 vocational credits, and attained a grade point average of 3.3 for the semester, with no grade lower than a C, will be placed on the Dean’s List. Students meeting these requirements in a combination of both summer terms will be eligible for these honors.
