Academic Honors Policies

Dean's List/Dean's Distinguished List

Special recognition and scholarships are given at the end of each semester to students having high GPAs. Two lists of these names are posted. One is the Dean's Distinguished List, for which a student must have a semester GPA of 3.75 to 4.00 on at least 12 hours of completed college level class work. The other is the Dean's List, for which a student must have a semester GPA of 3.50 to 3.74 on at least 12 hours of completed college level class work. On both lists, at least 12 hours of the class load must be graded courses, not pass, credit, or other such designations, and there may be no incompletes.

Gold Award

Students who have completed 75+ hours of college credit at the end of the fall semester with a cumulative GPA of 3.90+ will receive Gold Awards of $600. Recipients of this award must be currently enrolled in at least 12 hours for the spring semester and must have earned (in residence) a minimum of 12 hours of credit in the fall. Students who have been under citizenship probation any time during the school year automatically forfeit all eligibility for this award. This award is given to returning students during the following academic year.

Silver Award

Students who have completed 75+ hours of college credit at the end of the fall semester with cumulative GPAs of 3.70 to 3.89 will receive Silver Awards of $400. The same enrollment, residency, and citizenship stipulations apply to the Silver Award as stated under the Gold Award. This award is given to returning students during the following academic year.

An eligible student will receive either a Gold or a Silver Award one time.
