The Dean’s list is published after the fall and spring semesters. Students who have earned a semester GPA of 3.75 or higher on at least 12 credit hours of course work for a letter grade and who have no grades of incomplete are named to the list. Students may decline having their names published if they so desire by contacting the Honors Director.
The college initiated its Dean’s list during the first semester of the 1999-2000 school year and it celebrates the achievement of students who have met high academic standards and can motivate students preparing for graduate studies, according to Anita Stalter, Goshen’s academic dean, vice president for academic affairs and professor of education.
Students earning at least a 3.6 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) in Goshen College Division of Adult and External Studies (DAES) also are included in the list – a significant achievement since most DAES students are working adults taking highly personalized night classes.
