Wilson Community College encourages scholarship. To honor those students who achieve excellence, a list will be published following each semester recognizing all students who achieve a grade point average of 3.50 or above on a minimum of 6 semester hours with no grade below "B". Credit hours in developmental courses (any course that has 0 as the first number in the 3 digit course number) and courses for which grades of I, CT, S, U, AU, W or EX are earned will not be counted in the 6 credit hour load for computing Dean's List eligibility. Students who qualify for Dean's List with a 4.0 grade point average will be cited with "Distinction".
Each year, at graduation, students are recognized for outstanding achievement. Among these are the Faculty Cup, awards from the local community, and College departmental awards.
Non-graduating students with the highest academic averages are honored by being named marshals to serve at graduation exercises.
Students who have completed all requirements for graduation and have achieved a 3.50 - 3.99 grade point average will graduate with "high honors". Students that complete with a 4.0 grade point average will graduate with "highest honors". This distinction is noted on the diploma.
Graduates, be sure to register as Alumni and to order a copy of Graduation Pictorial CD, featuring hundreds of pictures from Graduation Ceremony.
To order, download the order form, complete it, and send it in. All proceeds benefit student scholarships. Take a peak at a few of the pictures by visiting the Graduation Album on Facebook by clicking on the year of your Graduation below.
