Iona University awards Latin Honors (undergraduate) and Honors (graduate) to students that achieve certain GPA milestones on their completed academic record. The GPA minimums are the following:

Undergraduate Latin Honors

  • Summa Cum Laude – 3.900 or higher
  • Magna Cum Laude – 3.750 or higher
  • Cum Laude – 3.500 or higher

Master's-level Honors

  • Graduate School of Arts & Sciences – 3.85 or higher
  • Graduate School of Business – 3.750 or higher

For students in the June 1 conferral period, Latin Honors and Honors designations published in the May Commencement program DO NOT INCLUDE coursework and grades earned by students in the spring. Final Honors awards will be recalculated during the certification period and appear on the student’s diploma and official transcript.

Replacement diplomas may be ordered to replace original diplomas via Parchment.

If you are in need of an official transcript showing your degree and graduation date, please note the following:

  1. If necessary, complete all remaining degree requirements and receive final grades. Incompletes are not final grades and must be resolved before your graduation can be processed.
  2. Check your PeopleSoft account and resolve all ACTIVE HOLDS. Transcripts cannot be released if you have an open balance.
  3. Order your official transcripts online. There is a $3 fee for each official transcript.
  4. Transcript requests take three to five business days, plus mailing time with the U.S. Postal Service. Rush service is available for an additional cost.
  1. Students should submit a duplicate diploma request. Please see “Diploma Reorders” box above.
  2. Once the replacement diploma is available, the registrar’s office will email the student to set up an appointment to have the diploma notarized. Student must bring photo ID to the appointment.
