Alpha, Beta and Gamma Numbers

Every summer, prior to the start of the academic year, the Office of the Registrar shall compute three numbers for use during the subsequent year: the alpha number, the beta number and the gamma number. These numbers vary from year to year, depending on the grade point averages of the four previous graduating classes, and will be used to determine eligibility for Latin honors and for Dean's Honors and Dean's High Honors. These numbers shall be publicly advertised at the start of the academic year.
