Academic Honors

Undergraduate students who have attended Stetson University only and whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is between 3.50 and 3.699 are graduated Cum Laude; if it is between 3.70 and 3.899, they are graduated Magna Cum Laude; and if it is 3.90 or higher, they are graduated Summa Cum Laude. 

Undergraduates who have attended other academic institutions and have earned 60 or more credits at Stetson are also eligible for graduation academic honors. In such cases the academic requirements for honors must be met both on all graded work taken at Stetson, and on all the combined graded work taken at Stetson and at all other institutions.

Students may receive recognition for academic achievement during a particular semester. The Honor Roll includes undergraduates with a 3.0 GPA based on at least twelve credits work attempted with no grade below a “C.” The Dean’s List includes undergraduates with a 3.5 GPA based on at least twelve credits of work attempted and no grade below a “B.”
