Distinction and Honors

Distinction at graduation is awarded to baccalaureate degree candidates who are in the top 12 percent of their college's graduating class, have achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.50, and have earned at least 60 credits at the University.

Distinction at graduation is awarded to associate degree candidates who are in the top 12 percent of their college's graduating class, have achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.50, and have earned at least 30 credits at the University.

The 12 percent should be divided into 2 percent Summa cum Laude, 4 percent Magna cum Laude, and 6 percent Cum Laude.

The distinction table is created each September for the coming fall/spring semesters and summer session, based on the grade-point average information of previous graduates.
