Latin Honors

Graduating with Latin Honors: Policy for Students First Enrolled Prior to Fall 2006

Undergraduate students with outstanding academic records are recognized at commencement. Three distinctions are made: summa cum laude (Latin for with highest honors) recognizes a cumulative GPA of at least 3.8; magna cum laude (with high honors) indicates a cumulative GPA of at least 3.6; and cum laude (with honors) indicates a final cumulative GPA of at least 3.4.

Academic honors are based on meeting the minimum honors GPA requirement for work attempted at Wright State University, as well as for all transfer college work attempted, as of the end of the term in which the student graduates; (that is, by the day on which term grades are due). In calculating cumulative GPAs for the purpose of graduating with honors, only the first grade earned for a course will be counted. This recalculation of the GPA may result in the loss of honors status at graduation. To be eligible for academic honors at graduation, students must have earned at least 45 credit hours at Wright State University.
