Full-time entry-level students who have completed a semester with a quality-point average of 3.5 or higher, and with no grades of “I”, “IX”, “IF”, or “X” are placed on the Dean’s List for that semester. Full-time entry-level students with a grade of “SA” (Satisfactory) in a given semester qualify for the Dean's List if at least one half of their semester course load is graded on a 4 point scale and a 3.5 grade-point average is earned in those graded courses. Students who receive only “SA” grades in a given semester are not eligible for the Dean’s List. Students included in the semester’s Dean’s List will receive a letter from the Assistant/Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. indicating the honor. Copies of the letter will be sent to the student’s Academic Advisor and retained in the student’s file within the Office of Academic and Student Affairs.
