Honor Graduates

The ten percent of each graduating class representing the highest grade-point averages are recognized as honor graduates at the commencement exercises. The honor graduates are recognized in three groups: summa cum laude (top 2%), magna cum laude (top 3% to 5%), and cum laude (top 6% to 10%). For consideration as an honor graduate, a student must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Complete the requirements for his/her first bachelor’s degree.
  • Complete a minimum of 40 semester hours in residence at Southeastern Oklahoma State University exclusive of the final semester of enrollment.
  • Complete all courses required for the degree. (A student with an incomplete grade [I] in any course required for graduation will not be considered.)

In computing the grade-point average, all courses attempted, including those at other institutions attended, will be considered.
