Graduating from the Honors Program

Congrats! You’ve applied to graduate and have completed the minimum requirement of 15 credit hours of Honors courses with a cumulative 3.5 GPA or greater. 

Now what?

  • RSVP to attend the Honors Program Senior Reception the Thursday before Commencement, and be sure to tell us about some of the accomplishments you are especially proud of so that we can highlight those at the reception.
  • Pick up your gold stole with the Columbia Honors Program seal to wear with your cap and gown.
  • Enjoy Commencement! 

The distinction “Honors Program Graduate” will appear on your final transcript.

Some of you may also be graduating with Latin Honors, which is based solely on GPA (3.75 or higher). You’ll pick up a separate golden tassel with your cap and gown.
