Found in the Student Handbook:
Undergraduate honors are awarded based on the student’s academic work at Concordia and on that earned within ten years prior to the student’s admission to Concordia. Diplomas are granted with three grades of distinction as follows:
- Summa Cum Laude to students with a 3.90-4.0 cumulative grade point average
- Magna Cum Laude to students with a 3.70-3.89 cumulative grade point average
- Cum Laude to students with a 3.50-3.69 cumulative grade point average
Students who successfully complete 20 hours of honors courses with a cumulative GPA in the honors courses of 3.00 or above will be awarded a "Graduation with honors" designation on their diploma.
