Central Methodist University, Fayette, MO

Central Methodist University student Samantha Salameh Azar of Santa Clarita, has been named to the CMU Dean’s List for the fall 2017 semester.

This outstanding academic achievement is awarded only to students who maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.50 or above for the semester, among other criteria.

Out of CMU’s nearly 5,000 College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) and College of Graduate and Extended Studies (CGES) students, 944 were named to the fall semester Dean’s List. These students study at CMU’s main campus in Fayette, at a CMU Center, or through CMU’s Online Programs.

Azar studies through CMU’s Online Programs.

Since its founding in 1854, CMU has evolved into a university that confers Master’s, Bachelor’s and Associate’s degrees through programming on its main campus in Fayette, Mo., and through extension sites and online.
