Undergraduate students will be eligible for Latin honors designation on their transcripts, diploma, and at commencement, if they complete their program with a cumulative GPA falling in the following ranges:
- Summa cum laude: 4.0
- Magna cum laude: 3.95-3.999
- Cum laude: 3.90-3.949
Graduate students will be eligible for Distinguished Scholar designation on their transcript, diploma, and at commencement, if they complete their program with a cumulative GPA of 3.97 or higher.
For undergraduate and graduate students, the cumulative GPA applies to coursework completed at CSU-Global Campus and does not include transfer work. Students who repeat courses for academic credit (including the receipt of D, F, and WA grades) are not eligible for honors designation.
Eligibility for honors designation will be determined at the time of degree conferral by the Office of the Registrar. Eligible students will receive notice of their designation via email with instructions to request appropriate regalia for the commencement ceremony (if applicable).
CSU-Global has also partnered with a few other honors societies. If students are eligible for these honors societies, they will receive invitations directly from those organizations with instructions on how to become a member. Please click on the Related Articles below for more details.
