Dean's list for academic excellence

Introduction

In the second week of February, the University publishes an Honours Roll in the Sydney Morning Herald. As a part of this publication, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences publishes the Dean's List of Excellence in Academic Performance.

The process

  • The Student Centre advises each Faculty of the deadline for submitting students' names for the Dean's list, and provides the Prizes Coordinator with an Annual Average Mark (AAM) report.
  • The report is checked for accuracy and those students who meet the eligibility criteria and rank highly enough have their names submitted to the Prizes Unit of the University.
  • The Prizes Unit will inform the student of their achievement and add the information to the student's academic record. An updated record is sent out to each student.
  • The Dean's List is published in the Sydney Morning Herald, usually on 31 January or the closest working day to it.

Eligibilty

Students are eligible to go on the Dean's List for Academic Excellence if they meet the following criteria:

  • Have completed an annual workload of at least 1.0 EFTSL (48 credit points) with a full-time enrolment loading recorded each semester; and
  • Have achieved an AAM of 85 or greater when calculated after the end of year exams.
