Latin Honors

Catalog Reference - Graduation with Honors

Latin Honors are awarded, by College, to undergraduate students in the top ten percent (10%) of each graduating class based on the calculated grade point average of their final 60 units completed at Towson University.

LATIN HONORS ARE DISTRIBUTED AS FOLLOWS:

Summa Cum Laude - top 2%
Magna Cum Laude - next 3%
Cum Laude - next 5%

Latin Honors for the August graduating class will be based on the calculated grade point average cutoffs set by the preceding May class.

SPECIAL NOTES:

The final 60 units, excluding transfer credits, will include the entire term in which the total of 60 units were attained. At least 45 of these 60 units must have calculable grades. A GPA below 3.50 will not be considered. Must have 60 units earned at TU.

Students records are also reviewed based on their total record at Towson University. Latin Honors will be awarded if the cumulative GPA equals or exceeds the cut-offs by college.

Students with majors in two or more colleges earn the highest Latin Honors for which they are eligible.

Graduate students are not eligible for Latin Honors.

PLEASE NOTE:

Honors are evaluated after the ceremony and will appear on the transcript and diploma when awarded.
