Hi. I have a question about Graduation GPA in relation to the Latin Honors.
The DPR states the following:
Honors with the Bachelor's Degree are
awarded according to your overall GPA
at GRADUATION. To be eligible, YOU MUST
HAVE COMPLETED 90 OR MORE GRADED UNITS AT
THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA Coursework
taken on the Education Abroad Program will
Required GPAs in effect in your graduating
year determine your eligibility and are
subject to change on an annual basis.
Effective Fall 2009, the following apply:
CUM LAUDE: 3.648 min. overall GPA
MAGNA CUM LAUDE: 3.786 min. overall GPA
SUMMA CUM LAUDE: 3.879 min. overall GPA "
I know it sounds small, but I'd like to try for one of the honors distinctions. But I was wondering, does SPRING quarter count as part of my Graduation GPA?
I ask because Graduation ceremony is held the FRIDAY of Finals week of Spring Quarter - I would have just finished my finals, so none of that quarter would apply to my "GPA at Graduation?"
Is this the correct interpretation? I'm hoping a recent graduate can shed some light on this info. In regards to this, I've heard diplomas are NOT received at the graduation ceremony, but afterwards. Is GPA notated on the diploma? How about any Latin Honors distinctions?
