Honors College Commencement Ceremonies


As an honors student, there are two main ways to celebrate your accomplishments: university commencement ceremony and/or the Honors College commencement ceremony.

UNIVERSITY COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY
For more information on the university commencement process or information on purchasing university regalia please go to: www.usf.edu/commencement

If you are only participating in the university-wide commencement ceremony, your Honors College graduate regalia may be picked up in the Honors College. However, you must still complete the Honors College graduation survey in order to pick up regalia.

HONORS COLLEGE COMMENCEMENT
Each semester the Honors College acknowledges the accomplishments of our graduates during the Honors College Commencement Ceremony. Family and friends are invited to share in this special event and offer congratulations and appreciation to these amazing students.

The date and time for the upcoming commencement ceremony can be found on the Honors College Calendar: http://honors.usf.edu/calendar.asp

Registration for the ceremony is included as part of your Honors College Graduation Survey, so if you are interested in attending please indicate this on the form. Once you submit the form, a confirmation email with specific information about details of the ceremony will be emailed to you.

The dress code for the ceremony is professional attire, however, caps and gowns should NOT be worn at the Honors College Commencement Ceremony. When you check-in at the commencement ceremony, we will provide the items & regalia necessary to identify you as an Honors College graduate, free of charge.

During the ceremony, each graduate will be recognized separately and we will request a photo of you in advance to include in the presentation. 

Honors Commencement Ceremony is typically located in the Alumni Center in Traditions Hall.
