Dean's List ^ Top of Page
The Dean’s List is comprised of undergraduate students who carry a full academic load for a given semester, are in good academic standing, and obtain a grade point average of at least 3.4. A full academic load is considered to be 12 undergraduate credits or more. This list is published soon after completion of the semester; therefore, students with Incompletes are not listed.
