Cum Laude is a system in which to recognize students for the rigor of their academic program as well as their success in that program. It is a point based system that combines Honor Points (based on advanced courses taken) and the cumulative grade point average to create a Laude Score. The Laude Score determines which laude award level a student receives at graduation.
