ACHS Launches Dean’s List Honoring Student Achievement

Portland, OR—November 7, 2016—American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) announces the launch of a new Dean’s List program. The ACHS Dean’s List provides public recognition of students’ outstanding academic achievement and commitment. The Dean’s List distinction is conferred to those students who have earned a 4.0 GPA and completed 100% of their credits for the semester.


“I love celebrating the hard work and dedication of our students, and I’m really excited to announce the new ACHS Dean’s List program,” says Dorene Petersen, ACHS founder and president. “The program provides students with another tangible reason to put their all into their studies. I hope the well-deserved recognition also inspires students to share their success publicly and to pursue their personal and professional goals to the fullest.”

The Dean’s List will be published at the conclusion of each semester after final grades have been posted in order to recognize the outstanding achievements of ACHS students. It will also be posted on the ACHS website.

ACHS students published to the Dean’s List are encouraged to share their achievements with friends, family, local community, and prospective employers. The Dean’s List distinction can be shared through social media, forwarded to local news outlets, and added to students’ lists of accomplishments on resumes as a verifiable record of accomplishment and success.
