Undergraduate students who achieve scholastic distinction may qualify for the following honors and programs:
Dean’s Honors are awarded each term to students who complete their program of study with distinction according to criteria established by the dean of the school.
Students who have achieved scholastic distinction may be awarded the bachelor’s degree with Latin honors. To be eligible, students must have completed 90 or more units for a letter grade at the University of California and must have attained an overall grade-point average (GPA) at graduation that places them in the top five percent of school graduates (GPA of 3.942 or better) for summa cum laude, the next five percent (GPA of 3.912 or better) for magna cum laude, and the next 10 percent (GPA of 3.837 or better) for cum laude. Coursework taken on the Education Abroad Program is applied toward Latin honors at graduation. The minimum GPAs required are subject to change on an annual basis. Required GPAs in effect in the graduating year (fall, winter, spring, summer) determine student eligibility. Students should consult their Degree Audits, or Registrar’s honors, for the most current calculations of Latin honors.
