Awards & Honors

Our students are achievers. We honor their success. Each year African Student Programs recognizes a select group of students at our annual Academic Awards Ceremony in the spring. We present awards to outstanding students from all classes as a way of celebrating their academic achievement for the year. Join the ranks of those honored at our Academic Awards Ceremony. Here’s how:

In order to make the Dean’s List, a scholar must achieve a 3.5 grade point average or higher for one quarter, taking 12 units or more and receiving a letter grade of “B” or better for all courses taken.
  • Earn a “Top 10” spot by having one of the 10 highest cumulative GPAs among students of African descent in your respective class by the end of winter quarter.
  • African Student Programs also pays tribute to students who have received other awards, honors and fellowships, and/or have attained membership in elite organizations, at the Academic Awards Ceremony.

We also present exemplary graduating seniors with special awards at our annual Black Graduation. For more details, please see our Black Graduation page.
