For the purpose of wearing honors cords at Commencement, students must meet the cumulative GPA requirements listed below:
  • Honors- 3.30 to 3.599 received one honor cord.
  • High Honors- 3.600 to 3.899 receives two honor cords.
  • President's Honors- 3.900 to 4.000 received two honor cords.
The calculation of the Commencement GPA does not include spring semester grades, since these have not yet been posted.
A final calculation of students' GPAs will be made after the spring semester grades are posted.  This calculation will determine the display of honors on the student's final transcripts.
If you have any questions about the honors policy, please contact the Registrar's Office at 207-755-5292 or
