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 earn 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)

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.
