Dean’s List and Dean’s List Scholarship

Dean’s List

The Dean’s List at Kingsborough Community College is established every term to honor matriculated students who have achieved academic excellence.

To be eligible for inclusion on the Dean’s List in each term (defined as 12-week session and 6-week module), day or evening students must meet the following criteria:

  1. Earn 12 credits or more (not including developmental courses)
  2. Achieve a grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher for the term
  3. Not have grades of “D,” “F,” “FIN,” “INC,” “R,” or “WU” at the time the list is produced.
  4. Be in good academic standing. Attainment of the Dean’s List becomes part of students’ permanent record and appears on their transcript.

Students do not need to apply to be considered for the Dean’s List. If eligible, they are automatically placed on the Dean’s List.

Dean’s List Scholarship

The Dean’s List Scholarship Award is available to a select number of Dean’s List students to further honor their achievement and encourage them to continue to pursue academic excellence. Students who have been on the Dean's List for their first two semesters and enroll full-time for a third semester are eligible for the Dean's List Scholarship. 

Transfer students and students who receive the WAVE scholarship are not eligible.

Students do not need to apply to be considered for the award. If eligible, they will be automatically contacted. There are a limited number of scholarship awards available. Awardees are selected from among those with the highest-grade point averages.
