Students are selected for graduation honors according to their individual merit. In order to be considered for graduation honors, a student must:
1) Exemplify excellent Christian character in attitude and spirit as demonstrated through Ministry Formation;
2) Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50;
3) Have completed 45 units for the DCP BA degree, of course work at LIFE prior to their graduation.
At the time graduation regalia is ordered, a student’s current GPA will be used to purchase honors regalia. This GPA will be used in the graduation program as well. If, after final grades are posted, a student’s GPA changes and the honor category changes, the student’s permanent student record and diploma will reflect the final honors category (or lack of).
