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 one of the following levels of distinction:
- cum laude (GPA of 3.5–3.64);
- magna cum laude (GPA of 3.65–3.79); or
- summa cum laude (GPA of 3.8–4.0).
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.
