Honors at Commencement are awarded to undergraduate students in three classifications and take into account all courses taken at Cal State Fullerton and other institutions of higher learning through the end of Fall semester 2013. The minimum grade point averages follow: cum laude, 3.5-3.74; magna cum laude, 3.75-3.89; summa cum laude, 3.9 to 4.0.
Students who have earned honors at graduation will be awarded ribbons with medallions that bear the seal of the university: white ribbons denote cum laude; orange ribbons denote magna cum laude; and blue ribbons denote summa cum laude.
Honors medallions will be distributed at college award ceremonies and those graduating with honors will receive invitations in the April/May timeframe.
