Awards & Recognition

Honors

When your application for graduation has been approved, your cumulative GPA at the end of the most recently completed term will be used to determine whether you will be recognized as a Distinction or High Distinction graduate for the commencement ceremony.

High Distinction: Students who have a GPA of 3.75 or above will be listed as High Distinction graduates in the graduation program and allowed to wear a gold honors stole.
