Graduation Honors Policy

3.7 to 3.89 grade point average - Magna Cum Laude or High Honors

PLEASE NOTE: An incomplete grade for any class during the semester will make a student ineligible for honors at time of graduation. An incomplete (I) is a temporary grade assigned by a faculty member at the end of a semester when the student has agreed to complete missing coursework or assignments. Extenuating circumstances such as illness are required for such a postponement of a final grade, and the student must complete the work by the 10th week of the next regular semester or the Incomplete grade will automatically convert to an "F".
Students who do not qualify for graduation in the semester for which they apply should notify the Registrar's Office if they want to graduate in the next semester.
Unofficial degree evaluation is an electronic tool to help students with course selection and degree requirements. Your completed courses, transfer credit and in-progress courses will be applied to your current plan of study or, if you wish, to a different degree plan. It is available to students at http://my.commnet.edu by selecting:
- Banner Self Service
- Student Records
- Student Degree Evaluation
Students pursue the program of study in effect for the year they officially entered the program. Students stay in that program until graduation unless there is an absence of two or more years. In that case, they move to the program of study in effect for the catalog year when they re-admit. If a student changes from one degree program to another, the Program of Study used from that point on shall be the one that was in effect at the time of the last program change. In no case, will a student be permitted to use requirements from more than one catalog year, or from a combination of catalogs, to meet graduation requirements.
Students who wish to change their enrollment from one degree program to another (for example, to change from General Studies to Accounting) should first discuss the change of program with their advisor or a counselor. A change of program form, available online or at any Student Services Office, must be completed and submitted to the Counseling and Student Development Services Office located in Room A119.
Course withdrawals are accepted up until the week before classes end. Specific dates are posted in the academic calendar and withdrawal forms are available online or at the Registrar’s office. The withdrawal does not have to be signed by the instructor but it is strongly advised that you speak with your instructor before withdrawing. If necessary, you can withdraw over the phone by calling the Registrar’s Office at 860-892-5756. Emails and faxes are also accepted. If you are receiving financial aid, it is strongly recommended that you contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing.

Refer to the academic calendar for the specific date.
