Upward Scholars Dean's List Students
This spring, 474 of 5,811 Cañada College students were named to the Cañada College Dean's List. The 13 students below are Upward Scholars students included on this list. (Chances are good that additional Upward Scholars students were also on the Dean's List, but didn't respond to our email requesting their photo.) Dean's List students are chosen based on their Grade Point Average.
All of the students below are ESL students who are completing or have completed Cañada's rigorous ESL sequence with a minimum of six ESL classes. After completing these classes, students are eligible to take classes that count toward a certificate or associate degree. Because of their work schedules and family obligations, most students can only attend college part-time. Thus, it often takes these dedicated students three to five years to complete their studies.
