Graduation and Medallion Ceremony

Graduation Application and Clearance Process

Honors Program students should apply for their degree via DrexelOne. You can find the application process here. There is not a separate Honors graduation application; Honors staff will automatically check clearances for all Honors students who apply to graduate with the University. Any students who have applied to graduate will be notified of their final Honors or Honors with Distinction graduation clearance status during Week 11 of each term.

Walkthrough Process: If you are planning to participate in commencement activities at the end of the Spring term but will not be graduating until Summer, please complete a Walkthrough Form with your advisor prior to the start of the Spring term. If your Honors Program requirements are not finished, you should reach out to an Honors Program advisor to discuss your plans for completion and your ability to participate in our Spring commencement activities. You can find additional walkthrough information here.
