Bachelor's degree candidates must have 48 credits in residence at Lakeland University earned or in progress and a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher to be eligible for academic honors.
Academic honor designations announced at the ceremony are based on the cumulative GPA for all coursework through the first seven-week session of the spring term and the earned or in-progress credit calculation for the individual student. Students eligible for academic honors will receive honor cords with their cap and gown package.
Please note: Official university academic honors are computed once all courses are completed and grades are entered. Honors designations may be newly awarded or rescinded for any student, once a final academic record assessment is made. Official honors designations are recorded on the academic transcript and diploma.
Honors are not awarded to associate or master's degree students.
