The Academic Council has established the following undergraduate honors categories:
Baccalaureate Student Honors
- Charter Oak State College Honors for baccalaureate students who have taken a minimum of 30 graded credits in Charter Oak courses and have earned a 3.5 or higher for those credits.
- Honors in General Scholarship to those baccalaureate students who have earned a minimum of 60 graded career credits and have attained an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher. Students who are eligible for both will be awarded Honors in General Scholarship.
Associate Degree Student Honors
- Honors in General Scholarship is awarded to associate degree students earning a GPA of 3.5 or higher with a minimum of 30 graded credits.
Note: "P" grades and credits are not a part of the GPA calculation, nor part of the calculation for honors. Honors for graduation are calculated at the end of Spring Term 1. August graduates are not eligible to receive honors at the May graduation, but if they achieve honors, it will be noted on their transcript. Only the Charter Oak GPA appears on the official transcript.
Academic Honors are not available for graduate students.
