Spring 2024 Semester

Franklin & Marshall College congratulates the following students for their scholarship and inclusion on the Spring 2024 Dean's and Honors Lists.

Students selected for the Dean's or Honors Lists are shared on the this page after the close of the grading process each semester. Franklin & Marshall no longer provides this information to hometown newspapers. Please consult the Publication Instructions found at the bottom of this page if you would like to submit an announcement.

A student earns Honors List recognition for achieving a 3.7 or better grade point average, and Dean's List recognition for achieving a 3.25 or better grade point average on a 4.0 scale. In both cases, to be eligible, the student must have satisfactorily completed three course credits in courses for which the standard grading option was utilized. (In addition, there may be no grade below "C-," where "NP" grades are considered to be below "C-.")

Our online lists do not include students who have chosen not to publically release their information. If you wish to have your name removed from future online releases, please contact in the Registrar's Office.
