Graduating with Honors

Graduating Cum Laude

Graduating baccalaureate and associate degree candidates with superior academic records are accorded special recognition by the University. A student who has achieved a cumulative GPA of 4.00 graduates “summa cum lade,” one whose cumulative GPA is less than 4.00 but is 3.80 or above graduates “magna cum laude,” and one whose cumulative GPA is between 3.60 and 3.80 graduates “cum laude.”  These honors are listed on official Cameron University transcripts, and honor graduates are formally recognized at commencement.

Graduating from the Honors Program

Students who complete the required honors courses and achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.2 will receive special notation on the Cameron University transcript and will be allowed to wear an honors stole at commencement.  See more info on the CU Honors Program.
