The University of Kentucky recognized the outstanding academic performance of nine students from Grant County who were named to the UK Dean’s List for the fall 2008 semester.
To make a Dean’s List in one of the UK colleges, a student must earn a grade point average of 3.6 or higher and must have earned 12 credits or more in that semester, excluding credits earned in pass-fail classes. Some UK colleges require a 3.5 GPA to make the Dean’s List.
A total of 4,395 students achieved Dean’s List recognition.
“UK is happy to tout the academic success of its students, such as those who have been named to the fall 2008 Dean’s List,” said UK President Lee T. Todd, Jr. “The success of our students reflects well on them, their parents, the high schools from which they graduated and our faculty at the university.”
