Academic Honors

Triton College encourages academic excellence and officially recognizes outstanding student achievement by designation to the President’s Honors List for students with a semester grade point average of 3.75 or higher and Dean’s Honors List for students with a semester grade point average of 3.50 to 3.74.

Records will be reviewed at the end of the fall and spring semesters to determine honors eligibility. No more than 50 percent of the semester hours completed during the period for which honors are awarded may be college success courses (numbered 001-099).

  • Full-time students — Students who complete a minimum of 12 semester hours in one semester will be eligible for academic honors.
  • Part-time students — Students who complete fewer than 12 semester hours during one semester will be eligible for honors when they have completed a total of 12 semester hours. Students’ records will be reviewed for honors eligibility upon completion of each increment of 12 semester hours with no carry-over from the previous period of honors eligibility.

(Graduation honors are based on cumulative GPA.)
