Graduation with Honors

Honors for the Commencement Program are based on cumulative GPA to December 31 of the year prior to Commencement.

  • Honors – GPA not less than 3.25
  • High Honors – GPA not less than 3.50
  • Highest Honors – GPA not less than 3.75

Upon program completion, students who have earned cumulative GPAs as listed above will be designated for Honors, High Honors, or Highest Honors on their diplomas and transcripts.


Students who receive any incomplete grades at the completion of a semester are not included in the Dean’s/President’s/Part-Time honors lists. If a student is eligible for an honor’s list once the grade is changed, the appropriate honor will be notated on the student’s transcript. However, because the change will occur after the deadline, student letters and media releases will not include the names of students who are eligible for an honor’s list.
