Graduation Honors

Graduation with HONORS is awarded to students who have completed all graduation requirements for an associate degree and have achieved a quality point average of 3.30 to 3.59; HIGH HONORS is awarded for a quality point average of 3.60 to 3.79; and HIGHEST HONORS is awarded for students with a quality point average of 3.80 or above. Honors determination at graduation will be based only on the courses directly applied to the degree requirements. In cases where more credits have been taken than necessary for a degree, only those grades for courses meeting the degree requirements will be used in the computation for Honors designation. Students who complete a certificate program with a quality point average of 3.3 or higher will be granted MERIT at graduation.
