Columbia State Announces Fall 2020 President’s and Dean’s Lists

Columbia State Community College is pleased to announce 146 students were named to the President's List, and 701 students were named to the Dean's List for earning academic honors during the Fall 2020 semester.

"The fall semester saw our students continuing to adjust to online learning formats and technologies due to the COVID-19 pandemic while managing full-time course loads and personal obligations," said Dr. Janet F. Smith, Columbia State president. "Despite these challenges, our President’s List students persisted and excelled in their endeavors to achieve academic excellence."

To qualify for the President's List, students must earn 15 credit hours for the semester with a grade point average of 3.90-4.00.

 “During the fall semester most classes remained online and in web conferencing formats while COVID-19 cases reached an all-time high in the college’s service area.  Some of these students were having a first college experience in this virtual pandemic environment while others continued to manage academic requirements with increasing personal obligations,” said Joni Lenig, interim vice president of academic affairs. “The students who earned this academic achievement proved that college success is possible with hard work and perseverance.”

To qualify for the Dean's List, students must earn 12 or more credit hours for the semester with a GPA of 3.50 or higher.
