Summa Cum Laude


Explanation:
The Summa Cum Laude distinction is awarded to students graduating with a cumulative grade point average of 3.9 - 4.0. (http://www.science.wayne.edu/~psych/undergrad/summa.html)

Summa Cum Laude

The listing and reading of honors for spring degree candidates are based on the grade indexes achieved at the beginning of the student’s final semester. The official honor awarded based on final grade indexes will be noted on the student’s diploma and transcript.

Eligibility for General Honors is based on the grade point average (GPA) earned in courses taken only at Yale, with letter grades carrying the following values: [...]
