Honor/High   Honor

How Honor/High Honor is determined for the Commencement Ceremony

Students finishing in Summer 2013 or Fall 2013

  • Honor & High Honor is determined by the cumulative GPA at the end of the student’s final semester of attendance.

Students finishing at the conclusion of Spring 2014 or Summer 2014

  • Because final grades will not be turned into our office until after commencement, Honor & High Honor for commencement is determined by the student’s cumulative GPA at the conclusion of Fall Semester 2013, and that the minimum number of credits at Tech or the COT have been or will be completed at the time the student finishes his/her degree.
  • A change of Honor/High Honor status on a student’s official academic transcript will occur if a student’s final cumulative GPA at the end of Spring Semester 2014 moves into a different range (see above) from the cumulative GPA at the end of Fall Semester 2013. Honor/High Honor is automatically designated on a student’s official Montana Tech transcript upon the posting of a degree.
  • Transfer credit and transfer grades are not considered in determining honor/high honor. Only MT Tech coursework is considered.
