G-33-1.3 Helen Leicester Honorary Scholastic Award

Each year the name of the student who has the highest scholastic average, with the highest number of COCC credits, among those receiving the Associate Degree is engraved on this plaque. Award is determined by highest COCC GPA, with a minimum of 36 COCC credits, through the Director of Admissions/Registrar. The award is presented by the department chair if awarded to an Associate of Applied Science student, or by a chosen faculty member, if an AAOT student. In case of a tie, all students with the highest GPA and highest number of COCC credits will receive the award. In the event that a student is eligible for both the Helen Leicester and Walter G. Coombs awards, then he or she may receive both awards.
