Academic Honors

The baccalaureate degree is awarded with distinction to graduating seniors with cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better. Candidates with averages between 3.5 and 3.69 are graduated cum laude; those with averages between 3.7 and 3.89, magna cum laude; and those with averages 3.9 and above summa cum laude. To be eligible for honors a student must have at least 65 graded hours (hours used for the calculation of ones GPA) taken at Centenary. The cumulative average of all work attempted at Centenary will be the only work used to determine eligibility for honors as well as the level of honor earned. CA (2003-04), p. 58.
