Honors

Honors can be applied to students by ProgramDegree, or Academic Term; you may also apply them individually by Student. The Honors tab lists all of the Honors by their type:

  • By Program: These Honors are restricted to students enrolled in the Program(s) you specify; the GPA and Unit requirements are based on the student's Cumulative totals.

  • By Degree: These Honors are given to students after they are granted the Degree(s) you specify; the GPA and Unit requirements are based on the student's Cumulative totals.

  • By Term: All students, regardless of Program or Degree, are eligible for these Honors; the GPA and Unit requirements are based on the student's Term totals.

  • By Student: These are Honors you manually apply to students without respect to their academic achievement (i.e. "Good Citizenship", "The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders"*, "Recycler of the Month", etc.)
