GRADUATING WITH LATIN HONORS
Bachelor's degree candidates who have attempted and completed at least 45 semester hours in residence at The University of Texas at Arlington, including all hours completed in the first and final semesters that contain the last are eligible to graduate with Latin Honors.
If a student meets the criteria for graduating with honors, (s)he will receive notification from his/her School or College a few weeks before the commencement ceremony. Candidates for graduation should note that the honors announced at commencement and printed in the commencement program do not include the final semester grades. Therefore, the level of honor may change once final grades are posted. Any changes to Latin Honors will be noted on the diploma and transcript.
Cum Laude Latin Honors,
if their overall GPA is 3.500 - 3.699 OR
( overall GPA is 3.300 - 3.499 and the GPA in the semesters containing their last 45 semester hours in residence is 3.500 - 3.699)
Magna Cum Laude Latin Honors,
if their overall GPA is 3.700 - 3.899 OR
( overall GPA is 3.500 - 3.699 and the GPA in the semesters containing their last 45 semester hours in residence is 3.700 - 3.899)
Summa Cum Laude Latin Honors,
if their overall GPA is 3.900 - 4.000 OR
( overall GPA is 3.700 - 4.000 and the GPA in the semesters containing their last 45 semester hours in residence is 3.900 - 4.000)
Students are typically allowed to participate in their commencement ceremony if they apply for graduation by the deadline and if they have completed all of the requirements for their degree program or will have completed all of those requirements by the end of the graduation term.
A student's academic school or college does have the right, however, to prohibit a student from attending his/her commencement ceremony based on school or college criteria used for determining who is and is not eligible to "walk" in their commencement ceremony each term. Please consult the office of your school or college if you have any questions about your graduation eligibility.
