The University recognizes student merit by awarding several distinctions at Convocation. Academic distinctions are not awarded for certificates since a certificate is not a degree. A medal or a plaque is awarded at the Fall Convocation to a student who has obtained a cumulative grade point average equal to or higher than that of the recipient of the same medal or plaque at the Spring Convocation. Students cannot change their graduation date or the date of their Convocation ceremony for the purpose of receiving a distinction. No decision regarding distinctions can be retroactively modified as a result of a repeated course or of an academic reset request.
