The designation of valedictorian and salutatorian for undergraduate students is applied to students who have completed a minimum of 45 credits above the 100-level at Sage and hold the highest cumulative GPAs, first to be awarded valedictorian and second to be awarded salutatorian status. If there is a tie, the designation is awarded to the students who have completed the most credits at the Sage.
In early January, the College analyzes transcripts to determine valedictorian and salutatorian for the upcoming May commencement ceremony. Along with potential May graduates, recent August graduates and recent December graduates will be considered. The final semester for May graduates will not be considered.
