The Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Honors Reception to recognize outstanding academic achievement was held on Friday, April 25 at the State Theater in Elizabethtown. Several categories of achievement were honored, including Honors Students, Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, Program Awards, and Scholarships.
Each year at the College recognizes exceptional students who have achieved academic honors and scholastic distinction by attaining and maintaining high accumulative grade point averages. Students must maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or above on a full year’s worth of coursework at ECTC to be eligible.
These are the specific criteria used for determining Honors Students:
1.Have completed 30 or more credit hours at ECTC.
2.Have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above.
3.Enrolled as a full-time student during both Fall and Spring semesters of the current academic year.
4.A part-time student who has completed at least 60 hours of coursework at ECTC, who intends to graduate this year.
In addition to meeting the criteria above, the 4.0 Medallion is for graduating students. Graduating students who have maintained a GPA of 4.0 will receive a medallion for this achievement. These students are recognized as both medallion recipients as well as honor students.
