The University of Pennsylvania will no longer grant the Dean’s List designation to undergraduates, effective academic year, 2023-2024.
The Dean’s List citation appears on the transcript and is awarded annually to any student who achieves a cumulative GPA of 3.70 or higher for the academic year (fall and spring semesters), provided that during that academic year the student has:
- Completed 6 or more course units for letter grades
- Received no grades lower than a C
- Completed all courses on time with no I, NR, or GR grade notations
A student who has received a sanction of probation or greater for a violation of the Code of Academic Integrity, the Code of Student Conduct, or the Sexual Violence, Relationship Violence, and Stalking Policy 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.
