To graduate with Latin honors requires a minimum of 60 passed hours at Texas A&M University,
Texas A&M University at Galveston, or Texas A&M University at Qatar (excluding Credit by
Exam and Graduate Level courses) with a minimum GPR of 3.500. The specific honors levels are as follows:
- 3.50 - 3.69 GPA = Cum Laude
- 3.70 - 3.89 GPA = Magna Cum Laude
- 3.90 - 4.00 GPA = Summa Cum Laude
Grade point averages used to determine Latin honors designations are calculated during the final degree audit the
day before the ceremonies and include hours and finals grades in courses taken during the graduation semester. Latin
honors designations will not be changed after the final graduation clearance deadline.
** You are not required to enroll in honors courses to graduate with honors.
** Taking designated honors courses does not mean you will graduate with honors.
No Upper Division student found guilty of academic misconduct may receive Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum
Laude honors at graduation. Upper Division status is defined as having earned 60 or more credit hours, including
transfer hours, prior to the date of the violation. This sanction is automatic upon a finding of academic misconduct,
and is imposed without regard to the severity of other sanctions imposed by the instructor or Honor Council.
