Graduating with Honors

There are three levels of honors at graduation and the requirements for them are as follows:

  • Graduation with cum laude (i.e., with distinction) requires a 3.3 GPA on all courses taken at UF beginning the semester after accumulating 60 credits, Upper Division GPA.
  • Graduation with magna cum laude (i.e., with great distinction) requires a 3.5 Upper Division GPA and an honors thesis (an approved research project or creative work). The Upper Division GPA includes all UF courses taken after accumulating 60 credits at UF
  • Graduation with summa cum laude (i,e., with the highest distinction) requires a 3.8 Upper Division GPA and an honors thesis (an approved research project or creative work). The Upper Division GPA includes all UF courses taken after accumulating 60 credits at UF.

Requirements for Honors Thesis:

  • Students must form a committee and submit a thesis proposal by the following deadlines:
    • For fall graduation, the deadline is the first Friday after Labor Day.
    • For spring graduation, the deadline is the first Friday after MLK Day.
    • For summer gradation, the deadline is the first Friday after Memorial Day.
  • Students must submit their thesis and the necessary forms to Ms. Heather Nemeth (hnemeth@ise.ufl.edu) by the penultimate Monday of each semester.  For more information on the procedure and documentations, see graduating with honors.

Suggestions for pursuing Honors Thesis:

  • Discuss research ideas with a professor whose area of concentration you are most interested in learning more about.
  • Ask the professor to be the “chair” of your honors thesis and help mentor you through the process, at least one semester before your final semester.
  • Start research for thesis before your last semester, as it can be a lot of work to complete during your final semester.
