    Dean’s List And Honors List

    At the end of the fall and spring semesters, a Dean’s List is produced recognizing those students who have completed at least 12 hours or 9 hours for associate degree nursing students with a semester grade point average of 3.5 or higher, with no grade below “C” for that semester, and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0.

    The Honors Program

    The Honors Program provides an excellent opportunity for high achievement students to be placed in small, intensified classes that explore issues and concerns from a wide perspective. A number of scholarships are available for selected members of the program. Students’ transcripts will indicate which courses are “honors,” and upon graduation those who have completed 15 credit hours in such courses will be designated graduates in the Honors Program.

    Students who wish to enter the program must meet certain criteria. For entering freshmen, the criteria are a composite ACT score of at least 22 and a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0. (For ENGL 101 Honors, a placement score of 10 qualifies.) Continuing students should have a cumulative average of 3.0 with no developmental English or Reading required. To graduate in the Honors Program, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.4 and 15 hours of honors courses.
