Students are recognized at the “Honors” level if they earn a minimum unweighted grade point average of 3.00. Students earning an unweighted grade point average of 3.5 or higher qualify for “High Honors.” All courses will be included in computing an average for the Honor Roll. In addition, the grade a student receives in a number of elective courses may be excluded from the computation of the grade point. Specific information about this information is included in the Course Guide.
Students are recognized for outstanding academic achievement as part of the commencement ceremony in June. This is done in two ways: 1. Distinguished Honor Students: Recognition is given to the top ten students based on using both the weighted grade point scale and the unweighted grade point scale. Students from both groups will receive a plaque recognizing this achievement. 2. Honor Cords: Honor cords are awarded at two levels. Students who have earned a cumulative unweighted grade point average of a minimum of 3.0 receive a yellow honor cord; students who have earned a cumulative unweighted grade point average of 3.5 or higher receive a white honor cord. The cords are presented to students just prior to the processional.
