ACADEMIC HONORS

DEAN’S LIST

If you are a full-time student and you achieve a 3.5 or higher grade point average for an academic term, you will merit the distinction of being on the Dean’s List. Recognition is given to those who qualify at the end of each semester, and the designation “Dean’s List” will appear on your grade report.

If you are a part-time student, have completed at least 12 credits at Cayuga, and accumulated 6 or more credits with a 3.5 or higher grade point average during the semester just completed, you will be named to the Part-Time Student Dean’s List. This honor will show on your grade report.

NOTE: Developmental courses bear no credit and do not carry quality points. Thus, they are not calculated into the semester or cumulative index. A developmental course carries equivalent credits, which are calculated into full-time status for purposes of attendance and financial aid eligibility. A student registered for one or more developmental courses might not qualify for the Dean’s List or Honor Roll.

HONOR ROLL

If you are a full-time student whose grade point average is 3.0 to 3.49, you are eligible for the Honor Roll and are so notified each semester.

If you are a part-time student who has accumulated at least 12 credits at Cayuga, and were enrolled for six or more credits and achieved at least a 3.0 but less than a 3.5 grade point average during the semester just completed, you will be named to the Part-Time Student Honor Roll. This honor will be included on your grade report.

NOTE: Developmental courses bear no credit and do not carry quality points. Thus, they are not calculated in the semester or cumulative index. A developmental course carries equivalent credits, which are calculated into full-time status for purposes of attendance and financial aid eligibility. A student registered for one or more developmental courses might not qualify for the Dean’s List or Honor Roll.
