Policies & Procedures
Degrees Awarded with Distinction
To graduate with academic distinction, baccalaureate and associate degree candidates must rank within the highest 10 percent of the graduating class of their respective degree-granting division. Additionally, baccalaureate degree candidates must have completed a minimum of 60 credit hours at Indiana University. Associate degree candidates must have completed at least half the hours required for their degree at Indiana University. Each degree-granting division determines the appropriate GPA requirements for the three levels of recognition: distinction, high distinction, and highest distinction.
