How Do I Graduate With Honors?

Your cumulative GPA includes transfer work from previous institutions, if transferred prior to fall 2013 when the process changed, and all 1000 to 2000 level coursework completed at EFSC.

Students completing any Bachelor degree with the cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher for all 3000 to 4000 level coursework completed at EFSC and 3000 to 4000 level transfer work from previous institutions prior to fall 2013, will graduate with honors.

Students who graduate with honors will be given a white tassel to wear on their cap when they sign in prior to the commencement ceremony.
