Academic Honors

            Undergraduate

An undergraduate student who obtains a general average computed on the basis of an approved formula, corresponding to each honor level indicated below shall be awarded the Certificate of Progression with honors.

HONORS                               GEN. AVERAGE

First Honors                            1.0 – 1.25

Second Honors                       1.26 – 1.50

Third Honors                           1.51 – 1.75

The approved formula in the computation of general average/honors:

Subject Grades x No. of Units

                                                  =  Gen. Average

Total No. of Units / semester

 

            To be a candidate for certificate of Progression with honors, a student shall have no grade below 2.5 and no failing grades in PE and NSTP although these are not included in the computation of the general average.

            Candidates for the Certificate of Progression with honors shall carry at least 18 academic units per semester.

Students Graduating with Honors

Students, who complete their course with the following general average computed on the basis of the approved formula, shall graduate with honors provided that they meet the other requirements prescribed by the School.

HONORS                                           GEN. AVERAGE

 

Summa Cum Laude                            1.0   – 1.25

Magna Cum Laude                             1.26 – 1.50

Cum Laude (with honors)                   1.51 – 1.75

 

The approved formula is the same as that of the undergraduates.

 

a.)    The candidates for graduation have completed in the University at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the total number of academic units required for graduation.

 

b.)    The candidates have no grade lower than 2.5 in any academic subject, if graduating with a baccalaureate degree;
