Graduating with Honors

Official honors designations are calculated and added to transcripts after all grades are submitted at the end of the graduating semester. This process takes place after the graduation ceremony.

The top 20% of each graduating class is recognized as graduating with University Honors. Honors designations are determined by GPA cutoffs established by the University such that:

  • The top 4% of a graduating class receives "Highest Honors."
  • The top 10% of a graduating class receives "High Honors."
  • The top 20% of a graduating class receives "Honors."

Honors are calculated for the spring graduating class each May. The spring criteria is used for the subsequent summer and fall graduations.

To be eligible to graduate with honors, an undergraduate must have completed at least sixty semester hours in residence at The University of Texas at Austin. Courses taken pass/fail are counted in the sixty-hour minimum, but only letter grades are used to determine the grade point average. Letter grades earned through credit-by-examination do not count toward the grade point average used to calculate honors.


Flash Photography of Dallas will be the official photographer. Your photo will be taken as you walk across the stage. After the ceremony, Flash Photography will contact you via email to provide proofs of your photos and information about ordering. Please make sure that the University has your correct address on file so the photographer can contact you. To update your address information, go to UT Direct (you must have a UT EID).
