Part 4. Undergraduate Academic Recognition

§ 3-401 The Dean's List

(a) The names of eligible undergraduates who have achieved a grade-point average for a given semester that places them approximately in the top 20 percent of their college will be included on a list prepared for the dean of the college. The GPA level for the Dean’s List will be set by each college and may be adjusted periodically.

(b) To be eligible for Dean’s List recognition, students must complete at least 12 academic semester hours taken for a letter grade (A through F). Students with I, DFR, or missing grades will be added as soon as letter grades are resolved and eligibility can be determined.

(c) Students who are registered with the Center for Wounded Veterans (CWV) or with Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) who are enrolled less than 12 but a minimum of nine graded semester hours who are in the top 20 percent of their college are also eligible. Such students must sign a release with CWV or DRES indicating their consent for consideration for Dean’s List eligibility and have submitted that consent to their home unit’s academic affairs office no later than Reading Day in the semester in which they wish to be considered for Dean’s List. These consent forms are valid only for the semester in which they are issued, and students must submit by the deadline updated consent forms for each semester in which they wish to be considered for Dean’s List.
