The Dean's List designation is awarded each fall or spring semester to those full-time, undergraduate students in a first baccalaureate degree program who meet the following criteria for a given semester:
- A semester grade point average of 3.70 or higher (Prior to the Fall 2018 term the GPA requirement was based on the top 10%. Beginning Fall 2018 the GPA is set at 3.70.)
- No withdrawal from an academic course. A student may drop a course without record or may withdraw from an activity course with a W grade without becoming ineligible for the Dean's List.
- No incomplete grade in any course.
A student who qualifies for the Dean's List will have "Dean's List" recorded on the academic transcript for that semester.
Students on the Dean's List are honored at a celebration each year.
