    Academic Policies & Procedures

    Academic Honors

    Graduation honors are awarded as follows: 

    • Cum laude...............3.50

    To be eligible for graduation honors, a student must earn at least 43 credit hours at Ursuline College, all of which must be earned through courses taken for letter grades. “Pass” grades do not count. 


    Departmental Honors

    Departmental honors may be possible. Earning this distinction may consist of the completion of a special project such as research, a thesis, taking one or more courses designated by the department, or a combination thereof. Students should consult with their deans, department chairs, or program directors for specific information as to the availability of honors in their majors and for specific requirements. 


    Admission

    Military Veterans

    Ursuline College follows Section 103 of the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act. The covered veteran is any individual who is entitled to educational assistance under Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation, or Chapter 33, Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits.

    Ursuline College permits any covered individual to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33 and ending on the earlier of the following dates:

    • The date on payment from the VA is made to the institutions.
    • 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the COE.

    Ursuline College ensures we will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs under Chapter 31 or 33.
