Graduation and Medallion Ceremony

Graduation is the formal conferral of your degree and commencement, and the Medallion Ceremony, is a celebration of that conferral. All Honors Program students are checked and cleared for graduation in their final term at Drexel.

Graduation Process

Honors Program students should apply for their degree via DrexelOne. You can find the application process here.

Students who are pursuing Honors with Distinction should submit the Honors with Distinction form at the start of their final quarter.

If you are planning to participate in commencement ceremonies at the end of the Spring term but will not be graduating until summer or fall, 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 the Medallion Ceremony. You can find the Walkthrough form here.

Medallion Ceremony

All graduating Honors Program students who earned either Honors with Distinction or Honors status, are invited to attend the Honors Program Medallion Ceremony in June each year. Graduating Honors Program students are awarded Honors Medallions, which are to be worn over their graduation regalia at the University Commencement Ceremony. This achievement is noted on the student’s official University transcript and in the University Commencement Program at Graduation. 

The minimum eligibility requirements for both levels of Honors Graduation are outlined in the Honors Program Plan of Study. All Honors Program students are encouraged to meet with an Honors Program Advisor early and often to ensure they are on track towards completing their requirements.

Seniors in the Honors Program will receive email updates about the Medallion Ceremony during Spring term. For more information, please refer to Drexel University’s official guide to commencement ceremonies.
