Honor Cords for Baccalaureate Degree Candidates

Graduation with Latin honors is based on all courses (including the last semester’s work) for which grades and grade points are given.  Any student seeking a bachelor’s degree who have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.50 to 4.00 and who have successfully completed 45 semester hours in residence at UNCG by the end of their senior year is eligible to wear* a gold honor cord at commencement. Students who meet the above qualifications* for the spring graduation term may begin purchasing honor cords from the bookstore mid November.

*Please note: Because the University Commencement date occurs prior to the completion of end-of-term processing, the determination of Latin honors (solely for the publication of the commencement program) is based on coursework and semester hours completed through the previous semester, as is the list provided for the purchase of honor cords.
