South Dakota State University announces Sierra Hickox of Fallon, Nevada, has been named to the dean's list for the spring 2024 semester for her work as a student in their College of Natural Sciences. 

Sierra Hickox is among the elite group of more than 3,300 students who were named to the dean's list for their outstanding academic performance over the spring 2024 semester at South Dakota State. 

To earn dean's list distinctions in SDSU's colleges, students must have completed at least 12 credits and earned a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. Students with F, I, U, RI, or RU grades are not eligible regardless of system term GPA attained. This report includes courses taken at other South Dakota institutions this term. A minimum of 12 credits within the 100-699 course range must be taken. A student who passes pre-general education courses may still qualify if the student has 12 other credits that fall within the 100-699 range. 

Overall, 3,378 students from 40 states and 37 foreign nations are on the list. More than 1,400 students received a 4.0 GPA, indicated with an asterisk. 

Founded in 1881, South Dakota State University is the state's Morrill Act land-grant institution and its largest, most comprehensive school of higher education. SDSU confers degrees from seven different colleges representing 230 majors, minors, and specializations. The institution also offers 39 master's degree programs, 16 Ph.D. programs, and two professional programs. 

The university's work is carried out on a residential campus in Brookings, at sites in Sioux Falls, Pierre, and Rapid City, and through Extension offices and Agricultural Experiment Station research sites across the state. SDSU's research expenditures for the 2023 fiscal year were more than $74 million.
