If you requested the diploma name change after March 31, the change will be reflected in the updated listing after degrees are conferred for May and August.

Your preferred name is appearing in the listing because you checked the box indicating that you wanted to use your preferred name when you completed your graduation application.

Graduate students do not receive Latin Honors.

Undergraduate students must have at least fifty-six credits of graded courses (excluding P grades) taken at Adelphi to be considered for Latin Honors. Students who meet that requirement will graduate cum laude (with honor) with a GPA between 3.3 and 3.599, magna cum laude (with high honor) with a GPA between 3.6 and 3.849, and summa cum laude (with the highest honor) with a GPA of 3.85 or higher.

At the time the listing is created, Latin Honors are tentative, pending the receipt of final grades. Latin Honors are finalized when spring/summer courses are graded. The final list will be updated again after May and August degrees are conferred.
