The Committee met to review new language for the policy on the awarding of
dean's scholar/dean's list honors and to consider issues raised by the
stipulation approved at the meeting of 4/16/97 that courses must be at the
100-level or above to count toward meeting the scholar/list requirements.
The Committee determined to maintain the requirement that courses which

The grade of "P" has no effect on the determination for Dean's Scholar
or Dean's List.
A student who meets either of these standards in one semester will
be awarded the appropriate honor through ordinary clerical procedures
in the Office of the Dean.
A part-time student who meets the standards for Dean's Scholar or
Dean's List in a series of semesters (fall/spring/summer) in the College
of Arts and Sciences, consecutive from the standpoint of the student's
enrollment, may petition through the Arts and Sciences Advising
center for award of the appropriate honor. Such petitions must
be made within one semester of meeting the requirement. All hours
earned in the final semester of the series will be counted, and hours
earned in any one semester may not be counted more than once toward
