The Park School of Communications has several student awards and honors

Dean's List

Dean’s List

The dean’s list in the Roy H. Park School of Communications is made up of majors in each class who meet all the following criteria during the semester:

  • a minimum semester GPA of 3.70
  • completion of a minimum of 15 credits, of which at least 12 are graded, not pass/fail or Satisfactory/D/F option
  • no final grades of D, F, or I (incomplete)

The dean’s list status, awarded each semester, is based on a student’s semester GPA rather than the cumulative GPA for all semesters the student has attended Ithaca College.

Graduation honors

Each degree program selects one or more students for special honors which are listed in the graduation program.  One or more students are also chosen for the Deans' Award at graduation; this honor is based on academic excellence along with a record of having both taken advantage of and having created important learning and service opportunities within the field.
