The University of the Virgin islands was unable to host in person ceremonies during the COVID-19 period. However, during the 2023 ceremony, awards were presented to students who made the Dean’s List from Fall 2019 through to Fall 2022.
According to UVI, “the Dean’s List recognizes full time undergraduate students carrying 12 or more degree credits, who have earned a grade point average of 3.2 or higher for the semester, with no grade lower than C and not taking any remedial courses.”
