Recognition of Latin Honors

Students earning baccalaureate degrees (including those awarded as part of combined degrees) are eligible to receive Latin honors based on their UB cumulative grade point average (GPA) on the following scale:

Average (based on 4.0=A)

  • 3.20 — cum laude
  • 3.50 — magna cum laude
  • 3.75 — summa cum laude

To receive the Latin honors designation, candidates for the June degree conferral date must:

  • Qualify based upon their UB cumulative GPA through the winter intersession of that year, and projected UB credit hours through the spring semester of that year; standings for Latin honors may change once final grades are posted or degrees conferred.
  • Present a minimum of 60 credit hours of UB undergraduate coursework, at least 54 of which must be graded credits (i.e., not grades of 'P', 'S' or 'U').

Virtual Participation

All applicable and eligible students will be included in this virtual ceremony.  No registration is required.

Diplomas Mailed 6-8 Weeks After Conferral

The Office of the Registrar will mail your diploma to your permanent address approximately six to eight weeks after the conferral date. Students are responsible for making address changes; these should be made through your HUB Student Center to ensure that you receive your diploma.
