Honors Cord for Commencement

Office of the Registrar
A list of students who are eligible for honors recognition, based on grades at the end of the previous semester is sent to the Bookstore. Students on the honors list do not need to petition to purchase an honors cord.
Students may use this petition if they expect to be within reach of earning honors* once grades for the current semester are taken into consideration. If approved, a student may purchase an honors cord at the Humboldt Bookstore for recognition at commencement.
