Undergraduate Students

Graduation Review and Preparation
• Print an APAS report and schedule a graduation review advising appointment
• Review the Undergraduate Student Graduation Checklist

Graduation Clearance Process
At the end of the semester in which you have applied to graduate, your file is reviewed for all requirements. If all requirements are successfully completed, the CCE staff "clear" you to graduate. The Office of the Registrar will then post the degree to your transcript. If any requirements are missing, your graduation is postponed and you are notified by CCE of the missing requirements.

Graduation with Distinction
To graduate with distinction, students must have completed 60 or more semester credits at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.75–3.89 is required for graduation "with distinction." A cumulative GPA of 3.90–4.00 is required for graduation "with high distinction." This award is based solely on a student's cumulative GPA, and no application is required.

Graduation with Latin Honors
Students must be enrolled in and complete the University Honors Program to graduate with Latin Honors (cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude). Students may obtain a degree with both Latin Honors and “with distinction.” For more information, see the University Honors Program section of the Undergraduate Catalog (starts on page 35).
