College Latin Honors

College Latin Honors affords recognition for academic excellence achieved over the duration of a student’s official undergraduate coursework at Lehman College. Summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude are the highest Latin Honors that the College bestows for sustained excellence in scholarship.

A Latin Honor is awarded only to students receiving baccalaureate degrees at the undergraduate level who meet the grade point average as prescribed in the Eligibility and Criteria Designation paragraph. Because final semester grades are processed sometime after Commencement activities, identification of College Latin Honors at Honors Convocation are tentative and unofficial, pending the submission and calculation of all final grades for the semester of commencement or the summer session.

For students with double majors, Latin Honors are awarded based on their primary major.

Eligibility and Criteria Designation

Effective Fall 2019, students are eligible for College Latin Honors at graduation if they have completed at least 50 indexable credits in residence at Lehman College, with a minimum cumulative index of 3.5 or above.

  • Magna Cum Laude: Index of 3.75 – 3.849
