Academic Honors and Awards

Graduation honors are awarded to Undergraduate students only, and are calculated in the Registrar’s Office approximately two weeks prior to the commencement ceremony. A student’s final term of attendance will be included in the calculation for graduation honors after grades are submitted for their final term and will appear on the student's final transcript and diploma.

Eligibility Requirement for Undergraduate Graduation Honors:

A minimum of 60 credits earned at Edgewood College

Graduation Honors Calculation:

  • Summa cum laude - 3.90 or above grade point average
  • Magna cum laude - 3.70 or above grade point average
  • Cum laude - 3.50 or above grade point average

Note: Graduation honors are based on the final grade point average (GPA) of Edgewood College credits. Graduation honors are different from semester honors calculations or graduation from the Honors Program.

Graduation Honors, if awarded, will be noted in the commencement program, based on the last grading cycle in which the student was enrolled. Honors cords are not worn or recognized at the Commencement ceremony.

Military Veterans Service Cords

Edgewood College honors its graduating military veterans by presenting them with special red, white, and blue cords to wear during the commencement ceremony. Please join us in thanking them for their dedicated service to our country.
