Latin Graduation Honors
For full information on Undergraduate Latin Honors, please refer to the Undergraduate Course Catalog, under "Academic Regulations". The information offered below is a brief overview.
There are three requirements that must be satisfied for Latin Honors:
- GPA of 3.4 or above (see table below)
- Minimum of sixty (60) Utica College credit hours completed in residence (Any courses that a student has opted to take in a pass/fail mode (instead of the standard letter grade) will not count toward the sixty credits)
- Minimum of thirty (30) credits at the 300- or 400-level
Second degree candidates are eligible provided they have carried sixty hours of additional Utica College credit in their second degree program.
The Latin Honors are as follows:
|Magna Cum Laude||3.6-3.79|
|Summa Cum Laude||3.8-4.0|
Students earning Latin Honors will be given a gold-colored tassel at the Commencement ceremony and their transcript and diploma will have the honor printed on it.
