Fall Hooding Ceremony

The Honors College Hooding Ceremony is Friday, December 15th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in the Student Union Ballroom, where we will recognize student recipients of Honors College Degree award in the fall semester of 2017 or candidacy for an Honors College Degree award in the spring semester of 2018.

Students who earn the Honors College Degree, the highest academic distinction awarded to undergraduates at OSU, wear hoods at the commencement ceremony as part of their regalia. To earn the Honors College Degree, students must complete both the General Honors Award and the College or Departmental Honors Award with a minimum of 39 honors credit hours with grades of "A" or "B" and both an OSU and a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher at the time of graduation. The honors degree is reflected on students' transcripts, and a special honors diploma is awarded.

Candidates for the Honors College Degree at Oklahoma State University are the only undergraduates who wear a baccalaureate hood with their academic regalia.

Photos. We will be taking individual photos of each of the honorees beginning at 3:30 PM, so award recipients need to arrive early. 

Attire. Graduates will need to wear their cap and gown. (If you are not graduating, business attire is appropriate.) Any questions regarding cap and gown purchases should be directed to the University Store (405-744-5237).

If you (or your family) have any questions about the Hooding Ceremony and Award Presentation, please don’t hesitate to contact the Honors College office at 405.744.6799.
