Scholastic Distinction

Graduation with Honors

Baccalaureate students graduate with scholastic distinction on the basis of overall grade point averages. The high overall grade point average includes all course work taken at all institutions of higher education. These averages and the citation they merit on the student's degree are as follows: 3.3, cum laude; 3.6, magna cum laude; 3.9, summa cum laude. Students must have 80 percent of their course work on the regular grading system minus any credits earned in courses where the student has no choice on receiving a P/NC grade to qualify for honors.

Students graduating from the Community and Technical College with an Associate's degree will receive a scholastic distinction of "High Scholarship" if their overall grade point average is a 3.3 or higher.

Transfer students should note that The University of Toledo will include all course work taken at all institutions of higher education in the calculation to determine if a student will graduate with honors. All college course work ever taken is computed in determining eligibility for graduation with honors, although no student will be awarded a level of honors above that indicated by The University of Toledo cumulative GPA. Note: The University of Toledo requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of standard letter graded courses from UT in order to qualify for graduation with honors.

Students who have had their grade point averages adjusted by "Grade Deletion" or "Academic Forgiveness" should note that The University of Toledo will include all course work taken at all institutions of higher education in the calculation to determine if a student will graduate with honors.
