The University of Nebraska at Kearney confers graduation honors on undergraduate students who meet the following qualifications:
|Summa Cum Laude
|Magna Cum Laude
The above grade averages are computed on the basis of a minimum of 60 semester hours' credit earned and completed in residence at UNK. Courses taken during the semester in which the student plans to graduate are not used in determining honors for commencement. When final grades for the semester are received, the students' final honors standing will be calculated and recorded on the permanent record. Grades and credit hours earned at colleges or universities other than the University of Nebraska are not applicable in determining graduation honors.
TRANSFER STUDENTS ONLY: A minimum of 45 credit hours must be completed at UNK prior to the final semester, and registration during the final semester must be sufficient to complete a total of 60 credit hours at UNK if the student wishes to be identified in the commencement program as an honors graduate candidate.
