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. Students must have applied to graduate by March 19, and have been verified to graduate with an Associate Degree from Harper College. Only then, will these students be invited to attend and be recognized in the virtual Convocation ceremony. Honors Convocation is different from Graduation.

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, Honors Program, Engineering Pathways, Excellence in the Discipline, and 4.0 Grade Point Graduates.
