Honors System

Honor’s System

The University, in wishing to provide recognition to exceptional students, has an honor system. Students are given awards for hard work measurable in grades, beginning with semester grades and ending with cumulative grades until graduation.

Students maintaining a high scholastic average are eligible for graduation with honors.

  • First Class Honor GPA 3.60-4.00
  • Second Class Honor GPA 3.25-3.59

Requirements For Honors

Students must:

  • Have fulfilled all the requirements for graduation within 4 years
  • Not have been placed on probation in any categories
  • Not have received a grade of ‘F’ for any course

Transfer students must have taken all the third and fourth year courses (or 72 credits) at the University.

Academic Action

Academic action taken on a student can be both favorable and disciplinary. When a student is performing well, all actions on him/her in the academic area are said to be favorable to the student. For example, when a student obtains a high GPA he/she is put on the Academic List of Honors; when he/she consistently achieves very high marks, he/she is given higher honors. However, if his/her achievement is below standards, disciplinary action is taken against him/her.

Disciplinary Action against the student is two kinds depending upon the severity of the poor performance measured in time; Probation or Dismissal.

Probation

Students who obtain a cumulative GPA of less than 2.00 (1.99-1.50) but above the limits set for dismissal from the University will be put on probation, except the first semester of the freshman year.

Dismissal

Students will be dismissed from the University upon the following Categories:

  • A student who obtains a cumulative GPA of less than 1.50 at the end of any semester except the first semester of the freshman year
  • A student who obtains a cumulative GPA of less than 1.75 for two consecutive semesters except the first semester of the freshman year
  • A student who obtains a cumulative GPA of less than 2.00 for four consecutive semesters except the first semester of the freshman year
