Millersville University students are awarded honors in three categories: Departmental Honors, Honors College and University Honors. To qualify for Departmental Honors, a student must complete a thesis written under the supervision of a faculty member. In order to graduate from the University Honors College program, a student must not only complete designated honors courses and a thesis, but also maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.35 in all honors coursework. Students graduate with University Honors by virtue of their grade-point average. Those who earn averages between 3.50 and 3.74 graduate cum laude; those who earn averages between 3.75 and 3.94 graduate magna cum laude; while those who earn averages between 3.95 and 4.0 graduate summa cum laude, the highest earned academic honor the University can bestow.

The Reverend Lewis Merwin Hobbs Medallion/Dr. Dominick ’53 and Mrs. Helen DiNunzio Award
