Beginning fall 2010, Harper College will recognize academic achievement each semester by designating an academic recognition to students who meet the following criteria:
Each semester, students who successfully complete 9 or more college level credit hours and achieve a semester grade point average of 3.75 or higher will be recognized as President's List students.
Each semester, students who successfully complete 6 or more college level credit hours and achieve a semester grade point average of 3.50 or higher will be recognized as Dean's List students.
Honors designations will be noted each semester on the student academic record. The total number of hours a student successfully completes will determine the designation received, based on the grade point average.
