Graduation with Honors

Candidates for the Baccalaureate degree may graduate with academic honors if they complete a minimum of 45 semester hours of undergraduate credit at UT Tyler. In addition, only students pursuing an undergraduate degree are eligible for honors. Only semester hours which earn grade point credit may be used to satisfy the 45-semester hour requirement. Honors will be awarded to the following final grade point averages:

Summa Cum Laude

3.90 to 4.00

Magna Cum Laude

3.70 to 3.89

Cum Laude

3.50 to 3.69

This recognition will be noted on the student's transcript and diploma after official verification of final grades. Honor Cords will be presented at the Graduation Ceremony.
