Baccalaureate Graduation Honors

Graduation honors for undergraduate students are based on the quality of a student’s work during the entire period of studies for the degree. To be eligible for graduation honors, a student must have been enrolled at New Mexico Highlands University for at least 30 semester hours. The grade point average (GPA) determines the honors award for “summa cum laude,” a GPA of 3.86 or above; “magna cum laude,” a GPA of 3.70 through 3.85; and “cum laude,” a GPA of 3.50 through 3.69. Appropriate recognition is given at the commencement exercises and on the student’s transcript and diploma.

  • Students with graduation honors will be notified in writing by the Office of the Registrar via their NMHU student email.
  • All information regarding those students who have qualified for honors is provided to the center personnel and our regalia vendor, CB Grad.
  • Phi Kappa Phi is an academic honor society dedicated to the recognition and promotion of academic excellence in all fields of higher education.
  • Those students who are inducted into Phi Kappa Phi will be notified by the Phi Kappa Phi faculty committee, not by the Office of the Registrar.
