Honors for the commencement program are only calculated for the students completing their degree requirements in the spring semester.  Honors for the commencement program for students who are completing their degree requirements in the summer are not calculated. Final honors calculations are performed after all final grades are received and a review of the student's academic record is completed. If a student is awarded honors, it will be printed on the student's diploma and official transcript.
