Honors Information

There are three types of honors that part-time undergraduate students may be eligible for at the University of Hartford. 

  1. Graduation honors are awarded to students who have completed a minimum of 60 credits in residence at the University of Hartford. Bachelor's degrees are conferred cum laude on students whose cumulative GPA is 3.25 or above, magna cum laude on students whose cumulative GPA is 3.5 or above, and summa cum laude on students whose GPA is 3.75 or above. A student who has earned fewer than 60 credits in residence but at least 45 credits in residence at the University of Hartford may receive graduation honors based on guidelines developed by the student's college of matriculation, with the approval of the collegiate dean and the Office of the Provost.
  2. The University Honors Program is designed for academically motivated students and offers an enriched curriculum and additional learning experiences. Students completing the honors program requirements will have university honors noted on their diplomas. For more information on the University Honors Program, go to
  3. The University hosts the Beta Psi Alpha chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda, a national honor society for adult, part-time students. Part-time students who have completed at least 100 credits towards their degrees, have a minimum of 24 credits in residence at the University of Hartford, and have maintained a GPA of 3.5 are eligible for membership in this honor society.
