Cum Laude Program

  • OUR CUM LAUDE Graduate Program Receives National Recognition

    The College Board released its 2012 "Catalog of Effective Practices" in the publication The CollegeKeys Compact. The compendium featured successful strategies from 56 Compact members, including schools, colleges and universities, and nonprofit organizations, which help low-income students get ready for, get into, and get through college. We are proud to have been picked as one of these 56 featured strategies for our CUM LAUDE Graduate Award.
