For student clubs, organizations, and programs, graduates should contact their club
advisors for information about cords.
For Honor Cords, which are typically distributed as graduates check-in to the ceremony
venue on the day of the Commencement Ceremony, students will want to verify their
GPA to ensure they receive the correct cord for their academic achievement. Here is
the breakdown for Honor Cords:
Graduating with highest honor, Summa Cum Laude = 4.0 cumulative GPA.
Graduating with great honor, Magna Cum Laude = 3.75 - 3.99 cumulative GPA.
Graduating with honor, Cum Laude = 3.5 - 3.749 cumulative GPA.
