Degrees are conferred by Rutgers University on the recommendation of the faculty of the Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick in May, January, and October. Students file for their diploma through the online diploma application. Diplomas will be withheld from all students whose financial accounts are delinquent.
The bachelor's degree is conferred with the distinction summa cum laude for graduates with a Rutgers cumulative grade-point average of 3.850 or higher, magna cum laude for those with an average of 3.700 or higher, and cum laude for those with an average of 3.500 or higher. Averages are not rounded to the next higher number in the calculation of honors.
Academic departments may recommend students for departmental honors based on a combination of cumulative grade-point average and academic excellence within the major.
