Each quarter, Yakima Valley Community College recognizes outstanding academic achievement by placing students on the President or Dean's list. Each student who meets the criteria of the specific designations receives a letter and certificate acknowledging the award and a notation will be placed in the student's permanent transcript.
To receive the President's list designation, the student must earn both a quarterly grade point average of at least 3.85 and complete a minimum of at least 12 graded credits.
A 3.4 to 3.84 quarterly grade point average is required to be placed on the Dean's list and the student also must complete a minimum of 12 graded credits per quarter.
