Scholastic Honors

Eligibility for Honors Graduation

Institutional honors are awarded only for undergraduate, A&M-Central Texas coursework. To be eligible for honors graduation, a student must complete no fewer than 45 Semester Credit Hour (SCH) at A&M-Central Texas.

Individuals earning degrees with fewer than 45 SCH from A&M-Central Texas must meet the following criteria based on all credits for their degree plan, including core courses taken at other institutions (i.e. Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.), and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.)).

Honors graduates will be recognized as follows:

3.90 - 4.00 GPA - Summa Cum Laude (Highest Honors)
3.70 - 3.89 GPA - Magna Cum Laude (High Honors)
3.60 - 3.69 GPA - Cum Laude (Honors)

Scholastic recognition for outstanding baccalaureate candidates will be announced as the student crosses the stage.

Announcement of honors during commencement does not ensure the student will be awarded institutional honors on the diploma. Students must achieve the above-defined GPA after all final grades are posted for the semester in which the student is graduating.

Graduate students are not eligible for institutional honors.
