Grad Honors GPA Cutoffs

Baccalaureate Honors are conferred on those students who complete a minimum of 48 semester hours at UCF and attain an overall grade point average that falls in the top 10 percent of all graduating students in the same college over the prior two-year period.

Honors are distinguished in the commencement program as follows:
  • ***

    summa cum laude — students in the top 2.5 percent

  • **

    magna cum laude — students in the top 5 percent but not in the top 2.5 percent

  • *

    cum laude — students in the top 10 percent but not in the top 5 percent

The asterisk (*) appears as indicated above next to the name of each graduate who may qualify for Baccalaureate Honors.

Because records for the final term are incomplete at the time the commencement program is printed and final term grades may affect relative rankings and overall GPA, indication in the program of graduation with Honors is presumptive rather than conclusive.
