How are Academic Honors Determined?
Honor Roll: To qualify for the honor roll, a student must have earned a GPA of 3.50 or higher while enrolled in a minimum of 30 graded credits during a traditional semester (Q1 and Q2, or Q3 and Q4). Credit earned in classes taken for S/U marks will not be included when computing the honor roll. This includes student assistant and work experience. Four categories of academic achievement will be recognized on the honor roll.
The distinctions are as follows:
• Honor Roll: Students with a weighted GPA of 3.5 to 3.749 on a 5.0 weighted scale.
• Honor Roll with Distinction: Students with a weighted GPA of 3.750 to 3.999 on a 5.00 weighted scale.
• Honor Roll with High Distinction: Students with a weighted GPA of 4.000 to 4.249 on a 5.00 weighted scale.
• Honor Roll with Highest Distinction: Students with a weighted GPA of 4.250 and above on a 5.00 weighted scale.
Academic Letter: Students need 2 consecutive semesters of a 4.0, or better, weighted GPA. The GPA is based on grades from those individual semesters, not a student’s cumulative GPA. Students must have at least 30 hours of GRADED (receiving a letter grade, not S) course work per semester. Students who receive an INC, U, or F in any class that semester are not eligible.
Academic Pins: Students who earn a 4.0 GPA or above on a weighted grade point scale in two additional consecutive semesters will earn an Academic Pin.
