FAQs about scholarships and awards
How do I qualify for the Dean's List?
You need to take at least nine courses in two semesters of the academic year and you need to have an average of 80% over those courses. You must have at least 7 A's. And you must take at least seven SCIENCE courses.
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.
