Dean's List for Fall 2022: Adult Studies

by Robert Blumenstein, Ph.D., Interim Provost Jan 19, 2023

Congratulations to the following adult studies students for making the Fall 2022 Dean’s List.

To qualify for Dean’s List, a student must have a minimum 3.50 GPA on no fewer than 12 credit hours (excluding pass/fail and audited courses). Our university patron, Saint Francis de Sales, had such a high regard for learning that he considered education to be the “eighth sacrament.” With that same esteem, the president, administration, and faculty of the University congratulate these students on their outstanding achievement.
