Graduation Honors

To be eligible for academic honors, students must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.40. Honors for the Associate in Arts degree and the Associate in Science—Transfer degree are based on the cumulative college level GPA, while the Associate in Applied Science and Certificate of Proficiency are based on the cumulative GPA. Students in the Associate degree programs will earn the designation of “With Honors” for a GPA of 3.40 to 3.89, and the designation of “With Highest Honors” for a GPA of 3.90 or higher. Certificates of Proficiency will be granted the designation of “With Merit” for a GPA of 3.40 or higher. (Certificates of Achievement are not eligible for honors designations.)

Those students participating in June ceremonies will receive recognition at the celebration based on the cumulative GPA on record at the end of winter quarter. If honor status changes once final grades are processed, adjustments will be made to the student record.
