What is required to make the "Dean's List"?

A student who, in any semester, attains a quality point average of 3.00 or better and has no grade below C is placed on the Dean's List for the following semester. (Grades below "C" include "I," "D," "F," "FA," "U," and "NC.") No student will be placed on the Dean's List who takes less than the normal load of 12 credit hours. Thus, a student must have completed at least 12 credit hours with the grades of A, B, or C.

The Dean's List is compiled at the end of the grading period. No student will be placed on the Dean's List retroactively except in the case of administrative error or late submission of grade reports by a professor. A student will not be placed on the Dean's List upon resolving a grade of "I."
