Students who earn an associate degree or a one-year certificate from CBC are eligible to receive scholastic honors as established by the College. The cumulative grade point average for all college-level credits earned at CBC is used to calculate eligibility for honors. The honors grade-point average calculation is based on the last quarter in which all degree requirements have been completed. Credits and grades transferred to CBC from other colleges and universities are not included in the calculation for the honors designation.
Students who earn an associate degree or certificate according to the standards above with a college-level cumulative grade-point average of 3.85–4.0 will graduate “with High Honors.” Students who earn an associate degree or certificate according to the standards above with a college-level cumulative grade-point average of 3.50-3.84 will graduate “with Honors.” The honors designation will be noted on the official transcript and on the diploma or certificate.
Students who earn a bachelor's degree with a college-level cumulative grade-point average of 3.5-3.69 will graduate as Cum Laude, 3.7-3.89 will graduate as Magna Cum Laude, and 3.89-4.0 will graduate as Summa Cum Laude.
For purposes of the commencement program and ceremony regalia, the honors designation is not based on the final quarter completed for degree or certificate requirements but on the Grade Point Average (GPA) as established from the winter quarter transcript for the graduating year.
