3.65 to 3.79
magna cum laude
3.80 or higher
summa cum laude
Criteria Determination Latin Honors are electronically calculated based on the criteria stipulated in the University catalog under which a student is meeting degree requirements. Typically, the catalog year reflects the academic year in which the student was admitted, however, this may change if the student broke continuous enrollment and is re-admitted under a different catalog.
Exceptions On occasion, a student may be pursuing a degree program that is being phased out or has been drastically altered. The only alternative for the student is to switch to the degree requirements stipulated in the current catalog. Because the change of degree requirements is beyond the student's control, the student would be allowed to petition to be covered by the catalog under which he/she was last admitted. If you believe an exception should be made in your case, please contact One Stop Student Services for a Latin Honors Review Form.
Baccalaureate candidates who will have accumulated forty-eight (48) hours (30 hours for RN-BSN students) at UNF by the end of the term of graduation and have the appropriate GPA prior to the term of graduation will be eligible to purchase a gold honor cord at the time they pick up their regalia from the UNF Bookstore. Honors candidates will be asked to stand for recognition during the ceremony and will be specially recognized in the printed Commencement Program (provided they have selected to have their names included in the program). Candidates who will have earned Latin Honors after the current term's grades are recorded will have honors posted on their diploma and transcripts (baccalaureate degree only).
