Awards are presented in three categories:
- Honors - 3.0 - 4.0 semester GPA
- High Honors - 3.0 - 3.4 cumulative GPA
- Highest Honors - 3.5 - 4.0 cumulative GPA
The evening provides an opportunity for parents and guests to celebrate the student's accomplishment in a relaxed atmosphere with SLU faculty and staff.
