The College of Humanities also recognizes two categories of academic distinction annually based on units completed for credit and letter grade (excluding all Pass/Fail [P/F] and Superior/Pass [S/P] grades). This is based on University credit completed in the prior year, beginning with Summer Pre-session and inclusive of Summer Sessions I and II, Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, and non-term Web-based credit, but excluding correspondence credit. During each regular semester (i.e. Fall and Spring), students must complete a minimum of 12 graded units.
The two categories of Academic Distinction for the year include:
- Highest Academic Distinction -- is based on 30 units and a 4.000 grade-point-average.
- Academic Distinction -- is based on 30 units and a grade-point-average of 3.500-3.999.
