What is a Dean’s List?

Dean’s List should be a familiar term to university students and graduates.


A Dean’s List is an academic award, or notation, used to lớn recognize the level of high scholarship demonstrated by students in a college or university. It is often synonymous with honor roll and honor list, but should not be confused with honours degrees.

Generally, students enrolled in college or university would need to lớn satisfy a series of specific requirements before receiving the Dean’s List. These requirements may differ across institutions, but in most cases will require students to enroll in a full-time capathành phố, to achieve a specific grade point average within the academic term, & lớn maintain a specific cumulative sầu grade point average throughout enrollment.<1>

Dean’s List is an honorary roll assigned khổng lồ the top students. As the Dean’s List is generally awarded khổng lồ the top few percentile of students, the GPA cut-off to lớn get onkhổng lồ the Dean’s List varies across faculties and academic semesters. If I were to lớn give a ballpark estimate, your GPA has to be at least 3.6/4.0 or 4.5/5.0 (average of A- and A for all subjects) lớn be considered for the Dean’s List. If it is a highly competitive sầu semester where everyone scored very well, the cut-off will be higher.

(For those of you in the United States, your college grade point (GPA) is based on a total of 4.0. In Singapore, the universities use Cumulative Average Point (CAP) which is based on a total of 5.0. For the rest of this series, I’ll refer khổng lồ the CAPhường system which is upon 5.0.)

When I was studying in the National University of Singapore, I was on the Dean’s List for all 3 academic years of my studies. The NUS Business School is a competitive faculty (it’s a leading business school in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region), with students from top junior colleges and scholars from the neighboring countries, so it was an accomplishment to lớn be on the danh mục. I graduated in 2006 as the top student in my specialization of Marketing. In my graduation year, I was given awards for being the most outstanding student.

Looking baông xã, university years were my favorite years in my entire two decades of education. I felt very stifled growing up as a kid in primary school, & the transition from each phase of the education system, all the way to lớn university gave me increasing liberty as a student and a person. Thinking baông chồng, the Asian & Chinese culture greatly diminishes the worth of a child by virtue of their age, and I felt like a square in a round peg hole growing up. I felt like I was repeatedly being beaten to fit a mold in the Singapore education system, and I never knew what was going wrong until I was much older.

Why get on the Dean’s List?

There are benefits from being on the Dean’s List. Some are important benefits, while some are fringe benefits. As a disclaimer, these are benefits that I experienced as a business student during my time in university (2003-2006). They may not apply khổng lồ other universities or faculties or time periods, though I don’t think they would differ much.

6 Benefits lớn Get on the Dean’s List

A sense of personal achievement. The most important reason in my opinion. Getting on the Dean’s List is a great personal achievement. The Dean’s List is not awarded based on absolute GPA score — it’s awarded based on comparative sầu performance with everyone else in the faculty. This means if all your peers are top scorers, you have lớn score even better qualify for the Dean’s List. Being on the Dean’s List means that you are among mỏi the top 1-5% of the faculty in terms of academic results.Increasing your employability factor. Ultimately we study lớn get a good job — our best possible job. While results are not the sole determinant lớn get a good job (there are other factors lượt thích your leadership activities, your personality fit with the company, etc.), your GPA is highly important, especially for top jobs with Fortune 100 companies. Many top employers use GPA as a preliminary criteria khổng lồ shortdanh sách candidates during campus recruitment, though there are exceptions if you have sầu a strong portfolio & strong leadership involvement in core curricular activities.Exclusive access lớn top employers. Top companies often hold recruitment events on campus. There are the recruitment seminars for the student cohort, và then there are exclusive networking sessions for selected students. The HR in top companies commonly request the Dean’s Office to lớn invite students that have a minimum GPA of X.XX. Examples are Procter & Gamble (my ex-company), McKinsey, investment banks, & consulting firms.Being on the Dean Office’s radar. When you are on the Dean’s List, people in the dean’s office & university career office tkết thúc to know you. After all, there are hundreds of students in the faculty, and only a small handful are on the Dean’s List. This is useful for random situations, say when you want khổng lồ get the inside scope on what’s going on, information on upcoming events, or just to have sầu someone to talk to lớn about university matters.Prestige and recognition. If all the special invitations and inclusion for exclusive events aren’t enough, being on the Dean’s List is pretty much synonymous with intellectually smarts & academic success. As the board would put up the names of people on the Dean’s List on the university website & on school notice board, students who read it generally know who you are, at least by name. During my time, people generally speak of those on the Dean’s List with a certain awe & respect.

While it was exciting being on the Dean’s List back in university, don’t associate it as part of your identity. At the end of the day, this is an external achievement like everything else in life — your car, clothes, material possessions, property — & they will shed away one day when you die. The most important thing is to recognize this as a size of personal achievement, và that being on the Dean’s List is a means lớn help you with other goals in life, such as employability và career success.
