The Honors Convocation celebrates the achievements of students graduating with Latin honors. Undergraduates who have successfully written and defended an honors thesis are awarded the honors designations of cum laude, magna cum laude or summa cum laude.

Information about the Fall 2016 Honors Convocation will be posted here later this year.

Things to know:

  • Dress: Graduation regalia are not worn at this event. Students tend to dress business casual.  
  • Medal and certificate: Students will receive an honors medal and an empty diploma cover during the ceremony. Certificates will be distributed to students at the reception afterward. 
  • Accessibility: For accessibility accommodations, contact the ADA coordinator's office as soon as possible to make arrangements. 
  • Parking: The office of Parking and Transportation Services has a number of suggestions about event parking.  
  • Photography: GradImages will photograph students receiving their medal and will contact students regarding photo purchases.
