Degree Requirements & Academic Regulations




The College has one graduation ceremony each year, which takes place the Sunday after the final examination week. It is a degree-granting ceremony in which diplomas are conferred and in which only those students who have fully completed the College's graduation requirements since the last ceremony are allowed to participate. Latin honors (cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude) are announced at Commencement and are awarded to the top 25 percent of the spring semester graduates. Students who complete their studies in the summer or fall term after the spring graduation date are awarded graduation honors based on the grade-point averages established for the spring class.
