Graduation with Honors

At graduation, special distinction is given by recommendation of the faculty. Honors are determined on the basis of class standing as follows:

  • Cum Laude - 3.500 - 3.699 GPA
  • Magna Cum Laude - 3.700 - 3.899 GPA
  • Summa Cum Laude - 3.900 - 4.000 GPA

As of January 13, 2023, only those who have earned a minimum of 30 credit hours at Spalding University are eligible for honors at graduation. Starting in Fall 2003 (for new students), only the Spalding GPA will be used to determine recognition of honors at graduation.

Graduation with Honors will not be awarded until all coursework is complete and all grades are officially posted on the student's record.
