Honors Categories for Graduating Seniors

Honors are conferred upon graduating undergraduate students who have displayed a high level of achievement during their university career.

Recipients of honors receive their degrees with

  • cum laude                     3.5 through 3.64.
  • magna cum laude           3.65 through 3.79.
  • summa cum laude          3.8 through 4.0.

These honors categories are based on a student's cumulative average at the end of the semester preceding the graduation semester.

If, at graduation, a student's grade point average would allow a higher honors category than that determined at the end of the semester preceding the graduation semester, the student will receive a substitute diploma indicating the higher category.

Chancellor's Honors are conferred upon graduating students who have completed the Chancellor's Honors Program.
