About the CLA Dean's List

The CLA Dean's List is posted a few weeks after each fall and spring semester to publicly recognize our undergraduate students' superior academic performance.

Students on the dean's list will receive:

  • a notation on their transcripts
  • an emailed letter from the dean
  • their name posted publicly on the College of Liberal Arts website at CLA Dean's List
  • their name listed on an interactive digital display outside of CLA Student Services, 16 Johnston Hall (ground floor).

Please note: Students who have requested to suppress all directory information will not have their names included on the dean's list roster published to the web or digital monitors.
