The A.B. degree may be conferred cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude.
All students with cumulative grade point averages of 3.40 or higher (excluding CR/NC and transfer grades), are eligible to receive the degree cum laude. [Complete information on calculating your GPA]
To determine eligibility for magna cum laude, grade point averages are recalculated to include grades covered by CR, NC and NNG. All students with recalculated grade point averages of 3.60 or higher are eligible to receive the degree magna cum laude.
To determine eligibility for summa cum laude, grade point averages are recalculated to include grades covered by CR, NC and NNG. The 10 students with the highest recalculated grade point averages in the class receive the degree summa cum laude, provided their recalculated grade point averages equal or exceed 3.80.
In addition to College-wide honors, most departments may also award honors in the major. Each department sets its own criteria for these honors.
