Graduation With Honors
In order to recognize graduating seniors who have done outstanding work in the collegiate curriculum, the College awards the Bachelor of Arts Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum Laude. Seeking to honor the approximate top ten percent of each graduating class, the Committee on Honors each year establishes for the following year the minimum grade point average for each level of honors. For 2001-2002 the scale was the following:

Cum Laude


Magna Cum Laude


Summa Cum Laude



Next: Phi Beta Kappa
