- About LWE
Based on full-time attendance, all students who earn 3.5 or above are granted high honors; students who earn a grade point average of 3.0 or above and below 3.5 are granted honors. Indexing does not affect semester GPA. The index is applied to cumulative GPA. The index does not affect work of one specific grade period, but of all cumulative grade periods.
All grades will be evaluated in proportion to the amount of credit given for the course.
At the conclusion of a student’s 7th semester:
Summa Cum Laude – Indexed GPA of 5.0 or higher
Magna Cum Laude – Indexed GPA of 4.5 or higher
Cum Laude – Non-Indexed GPA of 3.5 or higher or Indexed GPA of 4.0 or higher
