Undergraduate Graduation

Undergraduate Graduation

Honors

Honors apply only to undergraduate degrees. Students who have achieved a grade point average overall in one of the following categories may be eligible for honors. This GPA must be maintained in Murray State coursework as well. In addition, honors recipients must have earned a minimum of 40 semester hours at MSU. If one of these categories is deficient, the student will not receive honors.

3.40 - 3.59 Cum Laude*
3.60 - 3.79 Magna Cum Laude
3.80 - 4.0 Summa Cum Laude

*Previous to Fall 2015, 3.30 is the minimum GPA for cum laude honors.

It is important to note that if the overall GPA falls in one category and the GPA at MSU falls in another category, the grade point average in the lowest category will be the deciding factor (assuming that all other criteria have been met).

Diploma Format

The size of all undergraduate diplomas is 11 x 14 inches. The degree title will appear in the center of the diploma beneath the name. Majors and minors are not listed on the diploma. Degree honors, if applicable, are printed below the degree title.

Names will be printed on the diploma as they are listed on the application. The general format is first name, middle name, last name. Nicknames will not be printed.

Diplomas will be mailed to the address entered on myGate approximately 6-8 weeks after graduation. The address should be maintained and updated by the student.


Duplicate diplomas

You can NOW order duplicate diplomas online to be mailed to you.

Complete the Duplicate Diploma Request, using a debit/credit card for payment. Cost of duplicate diplomas is $15 ea.

Note: All degrees will be verified for accuracy. Please do not request that your duplicate diploma contain a "nickname". Those requests cannot be honored - only official names will be printed.
