Dean's List & President's List Award

Portland State University recognizes and honors the academic accomplishments of our undergraduate students each term by awarding placement on the Dean's List and the President's List. High achieving students, as indicated by grade point averages, are placed on the Dean's or the President's List according to the criteria established by the Council of Deans. Dean's List and President's List awards are only given to undergraduate students who have not yet earned a baccalaureate degree. The awards are given at the end of each term and are not recalculated based on grade changes or the removal of Incomplete grades. The award is acknowledged through a letter from the respective dean’s office and with a notation on the student's academic transcript.
