General Latin honors of three ranks-cum laude, 3.4 grade point average; magna cum laude, 3.6 grade point average; summa cum laude, 3.9 grade point average-are awarded to members of the graduating class on the basis of their academic record. Candidates under the Honors Program may receive departmental citations: with honors, high honors, or highest honors.

Students who have initial grades of Incomplete are not eligible for the Dean’s List for that semester.
