Students receiving academic honors will receive an honors cord with their cap and gown. This cord should be worn throughout the weekend whenever academic attire is required.
Students are recognized for graduation honors based on their cumulative GPA at the conclusion of the fall semester of the senior year. For complete information on graduation honors and for honors adjustment, please follow this link to the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies. If your graduating student is granted an honors adjustment at the completion of the spring semester, he/she must provide an honors designation letter from the dean's office to Tina Atkinson in College Events to obtain an honors cord and to secure a place in the Academic Awards Ceremony.
All questions regarding academic requirements should be directed to the dean's office, 401.865.2495.
