Please note: If you are a baccalaureate degree recipient graduating with Honors (cumulative GPA 3.50 or higher with at least 53 MU credits) please pick up your honor cord at the check-in table the day of commencement.
- Cum Laude: 3.50 – 3.64
- Magna Cum Laude: 3.65 – 3.84
- Summa Cum Laude: 3.85 – 4.00
Honor society and non-academic honor cords will be distributed by the advisor for each of the relevant organizations. If you are currently a member of such an organization, you should contact your advisor to determine if and when honor cords will be distributed to the graduating members.
Graduate students are not eligible for honor cords unless provided by their specific academic discipline’s honor society.
Graduating students who make a gift of $20.24 to the Class of 2024 Giving Campaign will receive a philanthropy cord to wear at Commencement. Gifts can be made at fly.monmouth.edu/24gift and can be designated to scholarships, a favorite academic program, Division I sport, or a club or organization that means the most to you. The Class of 2024 Giving Campaign exists to educate graduating students on the vital need to raise private support, while encouraging them to begin their participation as donors, and helps ensure continued access to a personalized Monmouth education for current and future Hawks. Please continue to check your Monmouth email for more information on philanthropy cord distribution as Commencement gets closer.
