For students graduating in or after January 2018, Mitchell Hamline School of Law awards the following academic distinctions upon the completion of all coursework and the awarding of the J.D. degree: summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude using the below criteria.
|Academic Honor||Honors Criteria|
|Summa cum laude||Final GPA of at least 3.67|
|Magna cum laude||Final GPA of at least 3.50, up to but not including 3.67|
|Cum laude||GPA of at least 3.33, up to but not including 3.50|
Cumulative GPAs are not rounded for Latin honors.
E.g., a student with a GPA of 3.49999 will receive the cum laude, rather than the magna cum laude, distinction. A student with a GPA of 3.32999 will not receive the cum laude distinction.
Latin honors are printed on transcripts and diplomas.
Commencement ceremony honors are different than final Latin honors. Graduating students with a cumulative GPA from the prior semester of 3.33 or better may walk with a medallion in the commencement ceremony.
Dean’s List/Dean’s Honor Roll
Beginning with the fall 2015 semester, students who earn a semester grade point average of 3.33 or better in fall or spring, based on seven or more letter-graded credits, are placed on the Dean’s List/Honor Roll that semester.
Due to the grade changes related to the Covid-19 pandemic, students were not eligible for Dean’s Honors in spring 2020.
Further details about honors can be found in the Law School Catalog.
Ranks appear on official and unofficial transcripts. Class ranks are computed at the end of a student’s first two semesters and every fall and spring semester thereafter. Ranks are based on cumulative grade point averages. Only those students who received all of their semester grades receive a class rank for the term. (An “I” grade, indicating incomplete, will prevent ranking. An “X” grade, indicating partial completion of a full-year course, does not prevent ranking.) Students are ranked with other students who are proceeding through law school at approximately the same pace regardless of enrollment option or program, except for the final ranking, in which students are ranked with their graduating class. Students who graduate in August are ranked with the subsequent January graduation class. A student’s class rank will not be changed once ranks are computed.
Due to the grade changes related to the Covid-19 pandemic, students were not ranked in the Spring 2020 term.
For Spring 2022, students were divided into four ranking pools.
- Pool 1: Students who have earned 30 or fewer credits (396 students)
- Pool 2: Students who have earned 31 – 56 credits (245 students)
- Pool 3: Students who have earned 57 or more credits (250 students)
- Pool 4: J-term 2022 and Spring 2022 graduates (243 students)
