Graduation with Honors

Undergraduate honor students who have been approved for graduation (Summer 2016; Fall 2016 and Spring 2017) and have met the honors qualifications, will receive an honors cord in the staging area prior to the ceremony. These honors cords are a gift from the dean to be presented only to those honor students who participate in the Convocation on May 19. (See the California State University, Fresno General Catalog, “Degree Requirements” then go to “Honors at Graduation” for clarification of how the honors designation works.) Prior to the start of the ceremony, the Administrative Assistant for your department will hand out the honors cords to those undergraduate students who have earned them.
