VGCC names 307 students to President’s and Dean’s Lists

Vance-Granville Community College Logo

Vance-Granville Community College has announced that 144 students earned President’s List academic honors and another 163 earned Dean’s List academic honors for the fall 2020 semester, which ended in December.

The President’s List recognizes students who achieved a perfect 4.0 grade-point average (GPA) while carrying a “full load” (of at least 12 credit hours) in 100-level or higher curriculum courses. To qualify for the Dean’s List, a student had to earn a GPA that was at least 3.5 but less than 4.0, and have no grade lower than “B,” while carrying a “full load” of such courses.

Fall Semester President’s List honorees are listed below by program of study and then by residence. The Dean’s List follows the President’s List.
