Graduation honors are awarded to students receiving their first baccalaureate degree, according to the scale shown in table below. Honors are awarded on the basis of all semesters completed, and the student’s final transcript remains the official record of any honors granted. However, in honoring a student at commencement, Boise State uses the student’s cumulative grade-point average (GPA) at the end of either spring or summer semester for the December ceremony and fall semester for the May ceremony.
|3.750–3.949||Magna Cum Laude
|3.950–4.000||Summa Cum Laude
All grades, including those that have been excluded from GPA calculation in accordance with the grade exclusion policy, will be used to calculate graduation honors. Students who are early participants for commencement are not eligible to graduate with honors.
