Do I qualify for an honors sash?

You must have:

  • A 3.4 or better OVERALL GPA
  • Completed at least 30 VIRGINIA TECH hours
    (If you have 30 Virginia Tech hours after your last term – you can not pick up your sash at the bookstore; you must see your Dean’s Office to see if you qualify).

Be sure to review information regarding commencement on the Commencement Information page.
