Miscellaneous Student Information
To graduate with Latin honors, students must have attended the University of Missouri-St. Louis for at least 56 graded hours and must meet the following qualifications: cum laude 3.2 to 3.49 grade point average; magna cum laude 3.5 to 3.79 grade point average; summa cum laude 3.8 to 4.0 grade point average. If a student has the necessary GPA at UMSL to qualify for Latin honors but has fewer than 56 graded hours at UM-St. Louis, all credit hours and the associated grades earned within the UM system (UM-Columbia, Rolla or Kansas City) will be included when the total credit hours earned in the UM system are at least 80 graded hours. In determining one's eligibility for Latin honors, all graded hours will be considered, including the original grade in each grade-modified course. No Latin honor higher than that which is consistent with the UMSL grade point average will be awarded.
The University Latin Honors policy specifies only courses taken within the University system qualify for Latin Honors. Courses taken at one of the University's Residential Centers (e.g., St. Charles Community College, University of Rolla, or Portageville) can apply toward Latin Honors. Please refer to the University Bulletin. The University Latin Honors policy excludes coursework taken at another institution. Transfer credits from a previous college or university cannot count toward Latin Honors.
A Nursing student who has more than 45 hours but fewer than 56 hours and a cumulative 3.2 grade point at UMSL is awarded Dean's Honors. Deans Honor recipients are listed in the Commencement Program for the University.
A number of scholarships are available for nursing students. Please contact the Office of Student Services or the Student Financial Aid Office (327 Millennium Student Center) for further information.
