At the end of each Fall and Spring semester, the Office of Undergraduate Studies publishes a list of matriculated students who meet the qualifications for placement on the Dean's List.
Full-time students will be placed on the Dean's List each fall and spring semester in which they have earned twelve or more credits in residence at Lehman College with a GPA of 3.5 or above. Part-time students will be placed on the Dean's List on each occasion in which they have completed twelve or more new credits in residence at Lehman College in two consecutive semesters with a GPA of 3.5 or above. In either case, no WU or INC grades are allowed even if twelve credits are completed with a 3.5 GPA.
This designation is bestowed upon students who have met all of the qualifications for Dean's List and have exceeded the GPA requirement for Dean's List by earning a 3.9 GPA or higher. This honor supersedes placement on the Dean's List.
Graduation with departmental honors requires that, in addition to any other departmental specification, a student achieve a cumulative index of 3.2 and an index of 3.5 in the major or in an interdisciplinary program for a minimum of 24 credits.
