The College recognizes academic achievement of students by announcing its "President's List" each semester. A student who completes a minimum of 12 credits at the College during an academic term and achieves a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above will be named to the President's List.

At graduation, students who have achieved a cumulative 3.5 GPA or higher are honored. Honor status is given to students graduating from a diploma, AAS or AS program and who have completed a minimum of 25 resident credits including credits from the last term before graduation. Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 to 3.74 receive Honors designation. Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 to 4.00 receive High Honors designation. Final Honor status is determined after final grades are received. Honor status designation will appear on the student transcript at the time of official graduation. Gold honor cords are given to all Honors and High Honors graduates attending a graduation ceremony.
