Diploma Name and Tentative Honors List
The inclusion of any names and honors does not
mean that degree requirements have been completed or that academic honors
have been awarded. Degrees and undergraduate honors will be awarded
at the end of the term.
Since commencement occurs before the official end of
the term, final grades cannot be determined in time for inclusion in
the printed commencement program. Thus tentative honors, based on the
student’s academic record through the end of the last term completed,
will appear in the printed commencement program and on this page and
will be recognized in the ceremony. Final official honors will be computed
after all grades are processed at the end of the term for the last term
of attendance and will appear on the student’s diploma and transcript.
Students who have completed at least 60 GPA hours in
residence with a grade point average of 3.5 or better at the University
of South Alabama are graduated with distinction. Transfer credit hours
are not included in the determination of academic honors. Academic honors
are not awarded for second, graduate or professional degrees.
Cum Laude 3.50 – 3.69
Magna Cum Laude 3.70 – 3.89
Summa Cum Laude 3.90 – 4.00
