Graduation Honors for Degrees

Superior academic achievement by graduating students is recognized by the following designations on transcripts:

  • Graduation with Highest Honor (Summa Cum Laude)— 3.90 to 4.0 grade point average
  • Graduation with High Honor (Magna Cum Laude)—3.70 to 3.89 grade point average
  • Graduation with Honor (Cum Laude)—3.50 to 3.69 grade point average

Note: Calculation of the grade point average for graduation honors is identical to the method used to calculate the grade point average to fulfill graduation requirements for the degree being earned. In addition, to be eligible for a graduation honor, students must have completed a minimum of 24 semester credit hours at the College.
