The Dean's List is a list of honor students for each college/school. It is published at the end of each semester/term. To qualify, a student must earn at least 12 credits for a semester on main campus, or 12 credits over no more than two consecutive terms at Fort Campbell, i.e., Fall I and Fall II, or Spring I and Spring II. Courses taken "pass-fail" and developmental/remedial courses are not included in the grade calculation. A GPA of 3.50-3.69 is Cum Laude, a GPA of 3.70-3.89 is Magma Cum Laude, and 3.90-4.00 is Summa Cum Laude.
All students that have completed at least 12 credits and have maintained a GPA of 3.5 will be part of a list recognizing academic excellence.
