Honors

Semester Honors (Fall/Spring):

Undergraduate students who achieve a semester grade-point average of at least 3.750 with a minimum of 12 credits included in the GPA calculation earn semester honors at the end of the semester (applies to Fall and Spring semesters only). Semester honors are recognized by a letter from the Academic Standing Committee and appear on the official transcript.

Semester honors are based on grades recorded with the Registrar’s Office at the end of each semester. In the calculation of semester honors, students with one or more incomplete grades for the semester will not be eligible. Courses taken at Brown University through cross-registration must be taken with the A, B, C letter grade system in order for these credits to apply toward the 12-credit minimum required for consideration for semester honors. Semester honors will not be awarded to a student retroactively whose GPA rises to 3.750 or higher after the Registrar’s office initial semester review (due to a grade change or completion of additional work).

Graduation Honors:

Graduation honors are awarded to Undergraduate students who have completed all graduation requirements by their official graduation date and have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.750 or higher. Graduation honors are recognized on the diploma and appear on the official transcript. Graduation honors will not be awarded to a student whose GPA rises to 3.750 or higher after their official graduation date (due to a grade change or completion of additional work).
