Graduation with an Honors distinction is evidence of a commitment to academic growth and fulfillment of requirements that go beyond the general college degree. The Cohen Honors College offers several "tracks" or paths that challenge you to do more meaningful work in classes and beyond the classroom. You may choose to earn one or multiple honors distinctions depending on your interests and ambitions.
Graduating with an Honors distinction means you will receive:
• Special acknowledgment at the University’s Commencement exercises.
• A notation on the transcript or diploma, depending on the requirements completed.
