Students are expected to make progress toward an academic degree. Progress is the completion of credits during each semester of enrollment. A full-time student is making satisfactory progress if he or she completes 24 credits during the prior two terms of attendance. A part-time student is making satisfactory progress if he or she completes 12 credits during the prior two terms of attendance. January term and summer terms count toward maintaining satisfactory progress. For further information about how satisfactory progress toward a degree affects financial aid eligibility, see the “Satisfactory Academic Progress” policy in the financial aid section.
The Dean’s List identifies students whose term GPA places them within the top 10 percent of each class for a given semester or Summer Term. It is computed following the posting of grades at the end of each semester or Summer Term.
To be eligible a student must have earned at least 12 credits in courses with differentiated grades (A-F) and have received no incomplete (I) or in progress (IP) designations. Students bear responsibility for inquiring as to dean’s list eligibility after grades have replaced their I’s and IP’s.
