The University recognizes academic distinction by noting on the transcript that a student has graduated Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum Laude. The required cumulative grade point average is: 3.5 for Cum Laude, 3.7 for Magna Cum Laude, and 3.9 for Summa Cum Laude. The School of Arts and Sciences does not round up for the purpose of determining university honors. For students who have transferred into this university, to qualify for honors, a minimum of 20 courses must have been taken at Catholic University.
