Graduation Honors

GRADUATION HONORS (LATIN DISTINCTIONS)

 

For students admitted to the college prior to Fall 2014 the graduation honors policy is as follows:

At graduation, there are three categories of honors for baccalaureate candidates.

  • A degree summa cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.8.
  • A degree magna cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.5.
  • A degree cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.2.

In the computation of graduation honors, all college work taken by students at institutions other than the City College is taken into account even if some of the work is not transferred.

A student must be eligible for honors based exclusively on their City College work, as well as the combined average of City College work and all work completed at other institutions.    

A student may not obtain a higher honor (i.e. magna cum laude instead of cum laude) than their City College index indicates.  Thus, if a student achieves a 3.3 index at the City College and has a combined index of 3.5, the honor cum laude is awarded.

Second degree students are not eligible for graduation honors. 

For students admitted to the college in Fall 2014 and after the graduation honors policy is as follows:

  • A degree summa cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.8.
  • A degree magna cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.5.
  • A degree cum laude is granted to students whose average in all subjects is at least 3.2.

Students must complete a minimum of 50 credits at City College to be eligible for Latin honors.

Only coursework completed at City College is taken into account in the computation of graduation honors.

Second degree students are not eligible for graduation honors.
