Graduation Honors

The quality-point system is used to determine graduation honors. To qualify for graduation honors, a student must complete at least 60 credit hours in graded courses on the undergraduate level, all taken at John Carroll. To merit the distinction cum laude, candidates must attain a quality-point average of 3.50; magna cum laude, 3.70; summa cum laude, 3.90. These honors are inscribed on the diploma. Quality points are computed to two decimal places and are truncated, not rounded.
