Black cap and gown MUST be worn by all graduates during the ceremony. The cap, gown, and tassel unit will be available for purchase online. If only needing a cap or tassel, please purchase in the Northland Store.
Honor Medallions and Stoles will be distributed to students who are graduating with Academic Excellence or Highest Honors. Review your academic transcript to determine honor eligibility. Honor calculations are based on the cumulative GPA of the student academic transcript following fall semester. Spring semester grades are not available prior to commencement. Final academic honors will be posted to final transcripts. The DARS report is not an academic transcript and will not be used to calculate honors. Highest Honors - Cumulative GPA 3.75-4.0 (Medallion & Stole). Academic Excellence - Cumulative GPA 3.50-3.74 (Medallion). Medallions and stoles will be available the evening of graduation or anytime between April 1 and May 10 from Lynell Wayne in the Student Services Area (Office 525B).
The Graduation Committee does not distribute Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Stoles. If you are a PTK member and would like a stole for graduation, please make sure to contact your PTK Advisor prior to graduation.
Degrees, diplomas and certificates will be mailed approximately 4-8 weeks following the posting of your final grades (pending successful completion of your program requirements).
