Tennessee Tech awards honors, diplomas to county students

More than 3,700 students have earned top academic performance honors, being named to Tennessee Tech University’s Spring 2019 dean’s list.

The dean’s list recognizes academic performers across the university’s eight academic colleges and schools. To be included on the list, a student must attend the university full time and earn a grade-point average of at least 3.1 on the 4.0 scale.

More than 1,450 degrees were awarded earlier this month to women and men who came to Tech from 81 counties throughout Tennessee, 21 states, and 25 other countries. Those earning undergraduate degrees represent 42 fields of study, and those receiving graduate degrees represent 25 fields of study.
