Undergraduate Graduation Honors


Effective Date Mar 29, 2018

At graduation, bachelor’s degree recipients achieving high academic performance are recognized according to their cumulative grade point averages. In the case of multiple bachelor’s degree recipients (multiple diplomas), the honors must be earned separately for each degree received and are determined by the program GPA based on courses that apply to the specific degree. In computing the cumulative GPA for graduation honors, transfer credits do not apply. Academic honors are listed on the student’s diploma and transcript. The honors are determined as follows:

Summa Cum Laude 3.90 to 4.00
Magna Cum Laude 3.70 to 3.89
Cum Laude 3.40 to 3.69
