About the Dean's List

The Dean's Honor List is the list of undergraduate students who have demonstrated a high level of scholarship in a given semester. They are recognized as such by the university's administration and an honors notation is added to their academic record for that semester.

Qualifications for the Dean's List

At St. Thomas, undergraduate students are placed on the Dean's List when the following qualifications are met:

  • The student attains a grade point average of 3.50 or higher at the end of a semester in which they have taken at least twelve credits for regular grades (A, B, C)
  • The student has received no grades of D or F or marks of I or R
  • NOTE: Evening program students must have taken at least eight credits in a semester and meet the same requirements.

How and When Students are Notified

Undergraduate students who qualify for the Dean's List will receive an e-mail letter from the Associate Vice Provost for Student Achievement commending them for their academic achievement. The e-mail will be sent to the students' St. Thomas e-mail inboxes.

The full Dean's List is also made public on the Dean's List Webpage. (Please note that it can take some time for the website to be updated.)

The Dean's List cannot be run until the final grades from a semester are processed, which is usually approximately one month after final exams conclude. Therefore:

  • Fall semester Dean's List students can expect to receive their notification in mid- to late-January, and
  • Spring semester Dean's List students can expect to receive their notification in mid- to late-June.

Previous Semesters

Students may see which previous semesters they were on the Dean's List by accessing their Academic Transcript in Murphy Online. If a student was on the Dean's List for a certain semester, it will be listed there as an "Additional Standing."

J-Term and Summer

J-term and Summer term grades do not count toward Dean's List qualification. Only semester (Fall and Spring) classes/grades are eligible.
