Dean's List

The dean’s list citation appears on the transcript and is awarded annually to any student who achieves a combined g.p.a. of 3.7 for the fall and spring semesters, provided that during the two semesters he or she has:

  • Completed 6 or more c.u. for letter grades
  • Received no grades lower than C
  • Completed all courses on time with no Incompletes, NR’s or GR’s.


A student who is found by the Office of Student Conduct to have violated the Code of Academic Integrity of the University of Pennsylvania or who has received a sanction of suspension or greater for a violation of the Code of Student Conduct is not eligible for the dean’s list in the academic year in which the violation occurred. The dean’s list citation will be removed from the transcript if the finding occurs after this honor has been posted or if the violation occurs during the summer term following the academic year in which this honor was awarded.
