Academic Honors

Iowa Lakes is proud of the academic honors earned by its students. The deans’ honors list is published each term which includes names of those full-time students (12 or more graded credits) who have earned a grade point average of 3.25 to 3.99. Students with a 4.00 grade point average are placed on the college president’s honors list. The lists are released to area news media.

Candidates for graduation who have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher are also honored at the commencement ceremony.

Three classes of recognition are indicated:

  • Cum laude:  3.25 - 3.49
  • Magna cum laude:  3.50 - 3.74 
  • Summa cum laude:  3.75 - 4.00  

Graduation honors are also posted on the academic record based on the final cumulative GPA.
