The 2023 Harper College Academic Honors Convocation is scheduled for Tuesday, May 9, at 7 p.m., in the Performing Arts Center at Harper College.
Honors Convocation is a traditional celebration of the academic excellence exhibited by the faculty and students of a college.
Individual students receive a formal invitation and are honored for their overall academic achievement, and their outstanding performance. Above all, Honors Convocation recognizes the students’ commitment to setting and attaining high educational goals.
Who is Recognized at Honors Convocation?
Eligibility to participate is determined by academic achievement and outstanding performance. During the Honors Convocation, students are recognized in the following areas for high achievement: James Brown Memorial Award, David K. Hill Memorial Award, Motorola Solutions Foundation Award for Excellence, Alpha Delta Nu, Phi Theta Kappa All Illinois, Phi Theta Kappa All Phi Phi, Honors Program Graduates, Global Scholar Distinction, Engineering Pathways, Excellence in the Discipline, and 4.0 Grade Point Graduates.
Students must have applied to graduate by the deadline and have been verified to graduate with an Associate Degree from Harper College. Only then, will these students be invited to attend the Convocation ceremony. Honors Convocation is different from Graduation.
