Students receiving their first associate degree from ULM will be awarded University honors in accordance with the following guidelines:

The cumulative average is the uncorrected average figured on all courses attempted, which includes ULM, transfer, and repeated courses.

A student who has declared Academic Renewal is not eligible for honors recognition at graduation.
