Batavia, New York — Responding to the concerns of part-time, high achieving students Genesee Community College has created a new Provost’s List recognizing their outstanding academic performance. The first Provost’s List honors 233 students enrolled part-time in Fall Semester 2014 classes. These students have earned a grade point average of 3.75 (roughly equivalent to an A) or better.
Previously the College recognized these students on its Dean’s List, which honors part time and full time students with a Grade Point Average of 3.50 to 3.74. Some part-time students who had earned a higher GPA had expressed disappointment that their stellar performance was going unrecognized.
“Part-time students often are juggling myriad responsibilities and often work that much harder to earn top scores,” said Dr. Kathleen (Kate) Schiefen, GCC provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “We felt it made sense to recognize their achievements separately and applaud the outstanding contributions they make in our classrooms every day.”
This year’s Genesee Community College Fall 2014 Provost’s List honorees, with their hometowns, are available through the following link:
GCC will release its Dean’s List, recognizing full-time and part-time students with a grade point average of 3.50 to 3.74 in the coming days.
