Student Success Strategy #14: Earn Honors

Do you want to be recognized as one of the best?

Colleges have many ways to identify and reward good students.  Here are two of the most common:

Dean’s List:  The Dean’s List is an honor that you can earn each semester.  Some colleges insist on a certain minimum number of credit hours taken, with a grade point average (GPA) of approximately 3.4 and above.  This can vary by college.

President’s Honor Roll:  The President’s Honor Roll is like a Dean’s List on steroids.  This may require both a minimum number of credit hours and an earned A in each class for a 4.0 GPA in that semester.  This is also earned by the semester.

One of the best characteristics about Dean’s List and President’s Honor Roll is that you earn them on a one-semester basis.  Have a great semester?  You can get one of these awards.  Have a difficult semester?  It’s only one semester, and you can earn the awards again next semester!

Don’t forget to add these awards to your resume as you enter the workforce!
