Dean’s List

Undergraduate students who earn 12 or more graded semester hours (“A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “E”) during a semester in residence at ASU with a GPA of 3.50 or higher are eligible for the Dean’s List. A notation regarding Dean’s List achievement appears only on the final grade report available online at

Additionally, the College of Public Programs uses the following criteria in determining eligibility and when printing certificates of recognition.

  • In order for students to be eligible for the Dean’s list, they must have started and ended the semester in the College of Public Programs. So, if a student switched from Psychology to Social Work on the third day of class, the student would not be included on the list. The same reasoning is applied to a student who switched from Recreation to Sociology right before the end of the semester.

  • We do not include nondegree students.

  • Students must earn the 3.5 or higher GPA in 12 or more graded semester hours in courses taken on the main campus. Coursework taken at the West or East campuses are not considered for Dean’s list eligibility.

Dean’s list certificates are mailed to the student’s permanent address.
