FAQs about scholarships and awards
How do I qualify for the Dean's List?

Do I need to apply to be on the Dean's List?
Generally not. Each year in the fall, we will look over our list of majors to see who qualifies to be on the Dean's List. We will post our preliminary list on the noticeboard outside the Advising Office. If we make a mistake and forget to include your name, you should let us know and we will investigate.
