Commencement

Special Awards and Departmental Medals

Special Awards and Department Medals will be presented during the Commencement Ceremony. Departments take into account primarily the cumulative grade point average in courses required by the major. Departments may also take into account the overall grade point average, degree of difficulty of courses taken, and performance in those courses. Each department's standards are available from the chair. The endowments for some of the medals listed below may stipulate other criteria for awarding the medal. In these cases, the endowment's criteria must be followed.
