Academic Honors

Term Honors

  • President's List
  • Dean's List

Valencia publishes both President’s and Dean’s Honor Lists each term in recognition of high scholastic achievement at valenciacollege.edu. These achievements will appear on your Valencia College transcript as part of your academic record for each term of recognition. Academic honors are earned at the end of each term if you have completed successfully at least six college credits (including developmental courses) and have no grades of F, I, M, W, or WN. To qualify for the President’s List, you must earn between a 3.75 and 4.00 grade point average. To qualify for the Dean’s List, you must earn between a 3.50 and 3.74 grade point average.

The President’s and Dean’s Lists are posted on the Valencia Web site one time per term after final grades are posted at valenciacollege.edu.

Questions pertaining to inclusion of names on the President’s or Dean’s Honor Lists should be referred to the Office of Records and Graduation by e-mailing records_graduation@valenciacollege.edu.

Graduation Honors

Academic honors for graduation are based on a student’s overall grade point average (GPA) for all grades earned prior to the graduation term. If you earn a 3.75 or higher overall GPA, you will graduate “with Honors recognition.”

Honors Degree and Honors Certificate

Criteria for the awarding of an Honors Degree and an Honors Certificate are included in the Seneff Honors College section of this catalog.
