*Degrees awarded by the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources will be awarded honors based of the percentages in the College of Arts and Sciences. Degrees awarded by the School of Energy Resources will be awarded honors based of the percentages in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

**Due to the fact that 5.744% of the computed College of Education graduates and 7.943% of College of Health Sciences graduates received a 4.000, no magna cum laude will be awarded.

UW Regulation 6-711, Rev 2 (Feb. 15, 2000)

Designations of summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude will be added to baccalaureate academic transcripts and diplomas of graduating students earning at least 48 UW credit hours (of which 45 hours must be for A-F grade) based on the following percentages:

Top 1% summa cum laude
Next 4% magna cum laude
Next 5% cum laude

as computed from the grade point average of graduating students in each college. Honors graduates will be identified by comparison to a 5-year rolling grade point distribution computed for each college, to be recomputed annually each Spring semester. These designations begin with the Fall 2000 semester and are not retroactive.
