Great Falls College MSU recognizes students’ academic achievements according to the following standards:

Dean’s List

To be eligible for the Dean’s List, a student must earn 12 or more credits in one term in courses that are not graded as Pass/Fail, have a semester grade point average of 3.5 or above, and not have any incomplete grades. If incomplete grades that were changed to passing grades might affect Dean’s List eligibility, the student may request a letter noting Dean’s List recognition.

Phi Theta Kappa

A chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, was chartered at Great Falls College MSU in 1998. Membership is based primarily on academic achievement. Students who meet the criteria are invited to join each semester. To be eligible, students may be full-time or part time, must have completed 12 semester credits, and must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5.

Membership in Phi Theta Kappa offers much more than a mere certificate of membership. The organization offers opportunities for scholarships, intellectual enrichment, and personal development through programs based on the four hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship.

Graduation Honors

Upon successful completion of program requirements, a graduating student with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher will receive High Honors, and a graduating student with a cumulative GPA between 3.5 and 3.749 will receive Honors. Graduation Honors are noted on the student's transcript.
