Honors recognition requires student’s attention

Forty percent of SPSCC students make the President’s and Vice-President’s list each academic year based on their GPAs.

These honor designations are placed on student’s transcripts after the final grades are posted at the end of the quarter. Students with a 3.6 to 3.99 GPA make the Vice-President’s list, and students with a 4.0 GPA make the President’s list.

Enrollment services adds the honors designation to student transcripts which can be viewed online under ‘Current Students’ tab and then the ‘View unofficial transcript’ link on the college’s website.

The honors recognitions are posted 10 days into the following quarter. As a courtesy, the school funds certificates for these honors designations. The President, Vice-President, and their respective assistants put aside time to send out the signed certificates of achievement.

These honors only apply to full-time students for a single quarter, but they also apply to part-time students accumulating the required GPA in more than 12 credits through multiple quarters. Part-time students must request a certificate if they have the requirements to receive one.

Achieving different goals in college may be difficult for many students and that is why SPSCC offers many programs, resources, and services to assist students with every phase of their education. Utilizing the resources on campus like the tutoring center, library, and other available services can help new, current, and future students be successful in college.

Vice President Rhonda Coates, Ph. D., enjoys looking over the annual report provided by student services. She believes in the students here at SPSCC and these honors show it: “Students have to commit themselves to success. It pays off.”
