Liberal Studies Academic Honors and Distinctions

Bachelor’s Degree Dean’s List, National Honors Society and Graduation Honors

Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society: The Marist College Gamma Eta Chapter has been inducting non-traditional students in to this honor society since 1982.  Students are invited into the honor society based on the following criteria:

  • Senior level (90 credits or more)
  • Must have completed at least 30 credits at Marist
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.600 or higher
Dean's List:  In order to qualify for this special distinction, students must earn a semester grade point average of at least 3.600 having completed a minimum of 12 academic credits graded on the A - F scale. In addition, students with grades of "I," "D," "F" or "WF" will not be named to the list. Any student who meets these criteria will have a Dean's List notation permanently recorded on official College transcripts.

Graduation Honors: At commencement, three grades of honors are awarded to those graduates who have completed a minimum of 60 credits of study at Marist College and who have maintained a superior level of achievement:

  • Summa Cum Laude, or highest honors, awarded to those having a cumulative grade-point average of 3.85 and no grade below B.
  • Magna Cum Laude, or high honors, awarded to those having a cumulative grade-point average of 3.6 and no grade below C.
  • Cum Laude, or with honor, for those having a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 or above.
