Dean's List and Hornbeck Scholars
The Undergraduate Dean’s List and Hornbeck Scholars are publicized every quarter in recognition of outstanding academic achievement.

The Hornbeck Scholars List recognizes those undergraduate students who, in a given quarter, have earned a 4.0 grade point average while taking between 12 and 14 credit hours. The Hornbeck Scholar honor is named in memory of Stanley Kuhl Hornbeck, a distinguished DU graduate elected to a Rhodes Scholarship in 1904, the first year of Rhodes Scholarship eligibility for American students.
