Dean’s list requirements
To be eligible for a Dean’s List, students must complete a minimum of 12 graded degree credits in that semester. Only undergraduate, degree-seeking students are eligible for and included in the Dean’s List.
Dean’s List honors are noted on students’ transcripts, and students may receive a letter from their dean’s office. The University also notifies local newspapers around the country. Announcements are sent once per semester to the newspapers near the student’s home zip code.
Each undergraduate school or college sets the semester grade-point average requirements to receive an honor, the name of which varies from school to school. Some have more than one level of honor, such as the School of Human Ecology which grants Dean’s Honor List or Dean’s High Honors, depending on the semester grade-point average of the student.
