Students carrying a course load of twelve or more semester credit hours (beyond any declarations under the “Pass/Fail Grade Option”) with LMU earning a semester GPA of 3.5, with no grades of I, IP, D, F, or NC, are named to the Dean’s List for that semester.

Upon completion of the undergraduate degree requirements, students receiving the associate degree who have earned 30 semester hours at LMU, as well as students receiving the baccalaureate degree with 60 semester hours earned at LMU, will be considered for graduation with the following honors:

Cumulative GPA Honor
3.50 through 3.74 cum laude
3.75 through 3.94 magna cum laude
3.95 through 4.00 summa cum laude

The valedictorian and salutatorian are selected from those students receiving a baccalaureate degree with at least 100 semester hours at LMU.

Honors recognized at graduation are based on a student’s cumulative average at the end of the semester preceding the graduation semester, and are therefore unofficial. Official LMU honors on the diploma will include the final semester’s grades.
