Latin honors -- summa cum laude

This honor is awarded to students whose cumulative GPA places them in the top 8 percent of students by major over the past five years. For honors beyond cum laude, a College committee will review each student’s record to gauge broad engagement with the curriculum by, for example, promoting students who have taken graduate courses, taken multiple majors, attempted courses across divisional boundaries, taken extra courses, and completed minors. For the honor summa cum laude in particular, the committee will consider the breadth and depth of the student’s engagement with the curriculum outside of the primary major.
