Calculation of Honors

Policy Statement

Dean's List

Dean’s List will be computed each term. Full-time students carrying 12 credits or more who earn a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher at the end of the grading period will achieve Dean’s List. Valid grades used for computation of Dean’s List are A through F or Credit/No Credit (when that option applies).

Graduation Honors

Graduation honors are calculated at the end of each term so students graduating in any term may have their honors placed on their transcripts.

The GPA used to determine honors is based upon the student's entire academic career at Drexel University. Transfer students must have a minimum of 75 credits at Drexel University. GPA requirements for honors by categories are:

  • Cum Laude 3.500-3.699
  • Magna Cum Laude 3.700-3.899
  • Summa Cum Laude 3.900-4.000
