Incomplete Courses (“I”s)

All incomplete grades will automatically turn into an “F” if they are not completed by the end of the semester of graduation. This will affect your GPA and may prevent graduation.

Latin Honors

Latin honors are listed on your final transcript and based on your final official UM system cumulative GPA after grades are posted.

Those listed in the commencement bulletin at the ceremony will be based on your GPA at the end of previous semester.

This is because your final GPA will not be available until after the commencement ceremony. We cannot make exceptions to this rule.

Latin and ENGR honor cords

The College of Engineering does not provide honor cords for students receiving Latin or engineering honors. Students wishing to purchase honor cords may do so through The Mizzou Store. The store does not accept individual orders for students; the College of Engineering provides The Mizzou Store with the count of our honors-eligible students, so it knows how many to order.

The following cord colors have been adopted by the University of Missouri-College of Engineering:

  • Honors Scholar: 1 Orange Cord
  • Cum Laude: 1 White Cord (if also Honors Scholar you may add 1 orange cord)
  • Magna Cum Laude: 1 White Cord and 1 Gold Cord (if also Honors Scholar you may add 1 orange cord)
  • Summa Cum Laude: 1 White Cord, 1 Gold Cord, and 1 Kelly Green Cord (if also Honors Scholar you may add 1 orange cord)
