Science & Technology: Dean’s Recognition as a Research Scholar Program

Dean's Recognition as a Research Scholar

The College of Science and Technology (CST) is pleased to announce our new undergraduate research transcript notation program that will start spring 2016.  This program will allow students that conduct undergraduate research the chance to earn special recognition from the Dean of CST.  This recognition will come in the form of a "comment" on their transcript as well as an invitation to the Dean's Recognition as a Research Scholar reception where the students will receive a cord for graduation as well as a certificate from the Dean.  The transcript notation will state "Dean's Recognition as a Research Scholar".  This transcript notation can be applied as soon as you meet the criteria.  So, we encourage you to find a research advisor now and begin contributing to the exciting scientific discovery process!
