The Dean’s List at WPI
Since the introduction of the WPI Plan almost 40 years ago, WPI has recognized its outstanding students at our Commencement exercises with awards of Distinction and High Distinction. These awards focus almost entirely on project work and are only awarded to graduating seniors. In 2008, the faculty voted to reintroduce a Dean’s List in order to celebrate the exceptional work of our students in every class every year.

WPI has a “non-traditional” grading system and does not compute a traditional Grade Point Average.
To be named to the Dean’s List, a student must achieve one of the following thresholds:
4/3 or more A and 1/3 or more B,
or 3/2 A or more and 1/6 or more B,
or 4/3 A and 1/3 SP,
or 3/2 A and 1/6 SP,
or 5/3 or more A.
