Dean’s List

CU Denver uses fixed criteria across all schools/colleges for determining eligibility for the Dean’s List. This policy applies to undergraduate students.

For fall and spring semesters, students must successfully complete nine graded hours in the semester. These courses can be both within and outside of the student’s home school/college. Metropolitan State University of Denver pooled courses will not be included in the GPA calculation nor will they apply toward the nine hours required for consideration. The GPA for inclusion in the Dean’s List is 3.750.

In the summer semester, students must complete six graded hours. Course inclusion will be the same as in fall and spring semesters. The GPA for Dean’s List in summer is also 3.750.

Scholarships tied to Dean’s Lists may have additional requirements.

The Registrar’s Office calculates the semester GPAs that are the basis for determining the Dean’s List. Incompletes will not be considered in the calculation of minimum number of hours. The Dean’s List will not be recalculated to include completed incompletes.
