Honors Graduation Forms

1. Honors Candidacy Form
The Honors College requires all graduating honors students (active or presently inactive), who have successfully completed only general honors, only departmental honors, or both general and departmental honors, to fill out the Honors Candidacy form. Do not be late in submitting your form. Failure to do so may result in your not receiving your certificate (and medallion if you completed departmental or both general and departmental honors) before graduation. It may also prevent your diploma from reflecting your honors credit as well.

2. Awards Ceremony Information Form
REQUIRED For MAY Graduates that have completed Departmental Honors or both General and Departmental
The information from this form is used in preparing the program and your introduction at the Honors College Awards Ceremony that will be on your behalf. The form is on-line and should be submitted no later than the date listed in the email you will receive at the appropriate time. When you fill out the form please upload a picture of yourself doing something interesting. This picture will be used for the slide show prior to the ceremony that your family and friends will see. This form is for May graduates who have complete departmental or general and departmental honors.

Honors College Awards Ceremony

Students who have completed departmental honors and students who have completed both general honors and departmental honors are invited to the Honors Awards Ceremony the day before graduation in December and May (place TBA). You will be receiving emails regarding the ceremony. Please respond to them by the date given in the email.


The Honors College does not have a stole. Omicron Delta Kappa is the organization through which you find information about available stoles. THEY HAVE A STRICT DEADLINE FOR ORDERING STOLES.  (If you completed departmental honors research you will receive a medallion to wear at graduation.)
