Biola students are placed on the Dean's List to honor those with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in twelve of more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2, according to a school news release. This past fall, 33 percent of Biola students achieved this academic goal.
"Inclusion on the Biola Dean's List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program," Patricia Pike, vice provost for undergraduate education, said in a released statement. "Our Dean's List students are bright, motivated, engaged, competent, and personable. They are already demonstrating the characteristics of success that results from applied intelligence and that will support future endeavors in society, community, career, and family life."
Biola's grade point average requirement for the Dean's List is one of the highest among Southern California Christian universities, school officials said.
Biola is a private Christian university located in Southern California on the border of Los Angeles and Orange counties in the city of La Mirada.
