Students will be accepted to the Latin Honors program if they meet two criteria:
- Washington University cumulative GPA > 3.65 through the sixth semester.
- A plan for the completion of a senior thesis
Students must enroll in EPS 499 Honors Research for a minimum of three credits.
The final level of Latin honors (Summa cum laude, Magna cum laude, or Cum laude) will be determined by the College immediately prior to commencement. Of the group eligible for Latin honors:
- Top 15% receive SCL
- Next 35% receive MCL
- Bottom 50% receive CL
Students who do not perform up to the department's expectation (e.g., by not completing a satisfactory thesis) can be removed from the Latin Honors program at any time.
