Graduating with Honors

The College of Engineering bestows two different types of honors designations upon its graduates (one based on GPA and one recognizing successful completion of EHP). Students in EHP may earn both types.


Latinate Honors

The classic honors designations awarded solely on GPA, meaning all engineering students are eligible to earn them:

  • Summa cum laude: 3.900-4.000
  • Magna cum laude: 3.800-3.899
  • Cum laude: 3.700-3.799

English “With Honors”

The designation on the diploma, awarded for successful completion of EHP will read “with honors.”
