Students receiving department and/or Latin Honors will be given an honorary cord to be worn at Convocation:

Department Honors

Information regarding Departmental Honors is made available directly from your major department no earlier than 3 days prior to Convocation. Contact your department to seek this information after June 18.

Latin Honors

These percentages may be shifted slightly up or down at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Affairs to take into account ties for a given rank.

Cut-offs for Latin Honors are recalculated once each year based on GPAs of June graduates. These cut-offs then apply to students graduating through March of the subsequent year. Information regarding Latin Honors is not made prior to Convocation.
