How do I know if I qualify for Honors?

To qualify for Honors, your SSU AND Overall GPA's must meet the minimum of 3.50 and you must have completed at least 45 letter-graded units in residence at SSU.

Honors will be noted on the official transcript and on your diploma. Both your final SSU AND your Overall GPA's must be at least:

  • 3.50 for Cum Laude

  • 3.75 for Magna Cum Laude

  • 3.90 for Summa Cum Laude

For the purpose of the Commencement Book, we will use the units and GPA from your last graded semester.  Actual honors will be recalculated at the end of the Spring semester and will appear on your transcript and diploma.

Honors are not awarded for Graduate/Postbaccalaureate degrees.
