Dean's List

Effective July 1, 2023, the University of Pennsylvania no longer awards the Dean’s List citation.

Prior to July 1, 2023, the Dean’s List citation appeared on the transcript and was awarded annually to any student who achieved a combined GPA of 3.7 for the fall and spring semesters, provided that during those two semesters, the student:

  • Completed 6 or more credit units for letter grades
  • Received no grades lower than C
  • Completed all courses on time with no Incompletes, NRs, or GRs

A student who 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 was not eligible for 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.
