General Honors 

The bachelor's degree is conferred with "Highest Honors" upon seniors with a four-year cumulative grade-point average of 3.85 or higher; "High Honors" is conferred upon those with an average of 3.7 or higher; and "Honors" is conferred upon those with an average of 3.5 or higher.

While honors are calculated on the basis of the student's midyear cumulative grade-point average for the purpose of inclusion in the commencement convocation program, final honors designations for the transcript and diploma are conferred on the basis of the student's cumulative grade-point average at the end of the final term. Averages are not rounded to the next highest number in the calculation of honors.
