Graduating with Honors (Latin Honors)

The designation of summa cum laude (top 5%), magna cum laude (the next 8%) or cum laude (the next 12%), frequently referred to as Latin Honors, is awarded to the top 25% of the Northwestern University in Qatar graduating students.

Latin Honors are determined by grades in all work completed at NU-Q. Latin Honors take into consideration all students within the school as a whole and do not distinguish between individual degree programs in the school, such as Journalism and MIT. Courses taken through cross registration or transferred to NU-Q from another university may count toward graduation, but may not be included in the compilation of the NU-Q grade average (GPA).
