To qualify for the undergraduate Dean's List at the conclusion of a semester, the student must have completed a minimum of 12 units of graded Cal State San Marcos coursework (A, B, C, D, F) during that semester with at least a 3.50 grade point average.

If you did not receive a Dean's List letter, please contact the Office of the Dean to request one be sent to you. Your request must include the semester of eligibility, student ID number and contact information: full name, email address or telephone. Email your request to csm@csusm.edu.
