Graduation With Honors
Print This Page

At graduation, a student with an accumulative grade point average of 3.90 or above will be recognized as summa cum laude; a student with a 3.7 to 3.89 GPA will be recognized as magna cum laude; and a student with a 3.5 to 3.69 GPA will be recognized as cum laude. Graduation honors are based on the eighth semester (or last semester). Graduation honors listed in the commencement program are tentative, based on the GPA after the seventh semester (or next to last semester). Because semester grades are not calculated until after the commencement ceremony, students may lose their honors status after graduation if they have not maintained the necessary accumulative GPA.
