Academic Honors

NCC recognizes academic excellence.

Dean’s List: If you, as a full-time student, earn a GPA of 3.4 or higher for a semester, you will be placed on the Dean’s List. If you attend part-time, you must have earned a 3.4 GPA. Dean’s List will appear on your transcript. No grade lower than C is acceptable, nor are grades of W, AU, I, N, or M.

Graduation Honors, designated in Latin

3.9 to 4.0 grade point average – Summa Cum Laude
3.7 to 3.89 grade point average – Magna Cum Laude
3.4 to 3.69 grade point average – Cum Laude

Note: Students who maintain a cumulative grade point average of 4.0 will receive a Presidential Award at graduation.

An incomplete grade for any class during the semester will make the student ineligible for honors at graduation. However, upon completion of the coursework, if the student has earned the required grade point average, the appropriate level of recognition will be noted on the student’s official transcript.
