Fulbright Graduates SDSU With Honors
Placeholder Image

Of the nearly 9,900 graduates who walked across the stage during San Diego State University’s Commencement Ceremonies, only a select group earned recognition as honors graduates including Kaleb Fulbright from Riverbank.

Fulbright, who received a degree in Political Science, graduated summa cum laude.

Based on a 4.0 GPA scale, the distinction of summa cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.8; magna cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.65; and cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.5. Some results are still pending final grades.

Notation of cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude on transcripts and diplomas is based on achievement when all courses for graduation are completed.

Graduating “with honors” is the sign of a student who has made the most of their time at SDSU, enjoying transformational experiences and preparing them for a successful future, whether they are joining the workforce or exploring an advanced degree.
