The names of undergraduates who have achieved grade point averages for a given semester in the top 20 percent of their college class will be included on a list prepared for the Dean of the college. To be eligible for Dean's List recognition, students must successfully complete a minimum of 12 graded Illinois semester hours and have a grade point average in the top 20 percent of their college class. The minimum GPA is 3.85/4.00 for the 2021-22 Academic Year (reviewed each summer and subject to change). Only grades in hand at the time the list is compiled will be considered in determining eligibility unless it can be established that the final grade average will be above the minimum required regardless of the grade eventually received; students with I, DFR, or missing grades will be added as soon as letter grades are received and eligibility can be determined. Credits earned during the semester through proficiency and advanced placement examinations may not be counted toward the 12-semester-hour requirement.
Students who are registered with the Chez Veterans Center or with Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) who are enrolled less than twelve but a minimum of nine (9) graded semester hours who are in the top 20 percent of their college are also eligible. Such students must sign a release with CVC or DRES indicating their consent for consideration for Dean’s List eligibility and have submitted that consent to 118 Huff Hall no later than Reading Day in the semester in which they wish to be considered for Dean’s List. These consent forms are valid only for the semester in which they are issued, and students must submit by the deadline updated consent forms for each semester in which they wish to be considered for Dean’s List.
