Graduation Honors

Graduation honors recognize outstanding academic achievement throughout a student’s academic career. The honors are awarded to students who complete the requirements for an associate degree, complete at least 30 credit hours at FRCC, and earn a 3.5 or better cumulative GPA at FRCC. Only completed college-level courses taken at FRCC will be included in the GPA calculation used for graduation honors. The three levels of recognition are defined as follows and will be posted on the student’s transcript:

Honor Required Cumulative GPA
cum laude (“with honor”) 3.50 - 3.749
magna cum laude (“with great honor”) 3.75 - 3.99
summa cum laude (“with highest honor”) 4.00
