Honors

Honors are awarded to undergraduate students.

If an undergraduate meets the requirements outlined in the Graduation Policy & Procedures, honors will be indicated in the printed commencement program and announced during the ceremony. Since commencement is held before the receipt of final grades, honor status is based on performance through the previous semester.

Honor graduates can purchase honor cords to wear with the cap and gown. Husky Bookstore will require a student I.D. at the time of purchase.

  • Summa cum laude (3.75 - 4.00) – Gold cords
  • Magna cum laude (3.50 - 3.74) – Silver cords
  • Cum laude (3.25 - 3.49) – Red cords
