Academic Honors

Semester Honors

Semester honors are compiled and published at the end of the fall and spring semesters. Students who have earned a grade point average of 3.0 (B) or higher while enrolled in at least 6 semester hours of transfer or career courses during a semester are recognized by placement on the College Honor List for that semester. Students placed on the Honor List are notified by the Educational Affairs Office approximately one month after the semester ends.

Commencement Honors

Students who have earned at least 30 semester hours at CLC by the end of the Fall Semester immediately preceding the commencement ceremony will be recognized as receiving the following honors based upon cumulative GPA:

Cum Laude (with praise)


Magna Cum Laude (with great praise)


Summa Cum Laude (with highest praise)


The Office of Student Records compiles the Commencement Honors list as part of the commencement program.
