Students are eligible to become members when they have completed at least half of
their credit requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Transfer students must have
completed at least one-half of their total credits at the College of Mount Saint Vincent with an index of 3.6 or better to be eligible.
Academic Honor Roll: The Academic Honor Roll is a record of students registered for
at least 12 credits per semester, who have earned an index of 3.5 in the previous semester. Students who have earned this distinction in both semesters of the academic year are acknowledged at the annual Honors Convocation.

completed by the end of the Spring semester.
• if, for course work beyond the first 30 credits, the student achieves a 3.5 index
for a minimum of 24 credits taken between the May Intersession and the
following Spring semester.
if, upon completion of all CMSV coursework, the student maintains a 3.5 index.
