Weighted Honor Points
At the end of each semester, Honor Roll and High Honor Roll will be computed and published. Students achieving a 3.50 to 3.74 weighted grade point average will be listed on the Honor Roll. Students with weighted averages of 3.75 and above will be listed on the high honor roll.
Grades in Driver Education and pass/fail courses are not included in honor roll computations.
Students receiving “incomplete” grades may not have their name published although they may make Honor Roll status after the incomplete is removed.
Student graduation honors will be awarded based on the Cum Laude system. Graduation honors will be based upon the seventh semester cumulative grade point average. Final class standing is based upon the completion of all graduation requirements. Cumulative grade point average at the end of six semesters will be available as soon as possible so that students may audit and verify the computation. Seventh semester cumulative grade point average will be released as quickly as possible following the close of the seventh semester.
The table below illustrates the Graduation Honors Recognition Program:
