Wenzhou-Kean University proudly recognizes students who have consistently demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. Those who meet the following criteria are eligible to receive a gold tassel and participate in the Commencement ceremony with honors:

Maintain an overall cumulative G.P.A. of 3.45 or higher.
Complete a minimum of 45 semester hours at Wenzhou-Kean (excluding credits earned on a pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis) by the end of the fall semester of senior year.

• Honors are divided into three categories according to grade-point average, as follows:

– Summa cum laude 3.85 to 4.00
– Magna cum laude 3.65 to 3.84
– Cum laude 3.45 to 3.64

Those designated by the Office of the Registrar as eligible to participate in Commencement with honors may pick up their gold tassels during cap and gown distribution.

Note: The posting of honors designations on diplomas, transcripts, and other student records is based on the FINAL cumulative G.P.A. which includes spring semester for May candidates, and Summer Sessions I and II for August candidates.
