Graduating from University Honors

If you are a current member of the University Honors Program and have applied to graduate, you will automatically be reviewed to graduate from University Honors. If you have fulfilled requirements for any of the designations, you will be certified as a University Honors graduate. Your designation will appear on your official academic transcript and, if you are certified as a University Honors Scholar or Distinguished University Honors Scholar, on your UC diploma.  

Important note for graduating students with an e-portfolio/learning portfolio requirement:  Five experiences must be documented in your e-portfolio by March 24. This includes any experiences that you're currently engaged in during spring semester. Please contact your honors advisor with any questions.
