Honor Cords

Academic honor cords for cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude will be distributed during the commencement ceremony. April 2023 graduates will receive a letter from Academic Affairs regarding your honors while students who have completed the degree requirements should have already received their final transcript with honors listed.

Please be sure to contact Academic Affairs if you have any questions or if the honors are not what you expected; otherwise, your honors may not be listed correctly in the program or announced at the ceremony.  Honor cords will be awarded to recipients during the ceremony.

Honor Society Members, Student Athletes, and Student Organization Members

If you are a member of an academic honor society or official student organization, please contact the faculty or staff advisor of that honor society for information regarding honor medallions, society cords, or pins. Student Athletes who meet official requirements will have the opportunity to wear stoles to recognize their participation in campus athletic teams.
