Graduation with Honors and Distinction

There are three different types of honors you can earn:

Honors Cords

Students who earn any of the honors listed above are eligible to wear Honors Cords at Commencement. (Each student wears only one set of cords, even if they have earned multiple honors.)

If you are eligible to wear Honors Cords at the upcoming Commencement, you will be notified by email in the last few weeks of the semester. You will also receive instructions by email for picking up your Honors Cords. Be sure to bring your BuckID or another form of identification when picking up your Honors Cords.

Make sure to bring these cords to the Commencement ceremony. Also, eligible students are welcome to pick up their Honors Cords as a memento even if they are not planning on attending the Commencement ceremony.
