All academic honors listed in the Commencement program will be “tentative,” as of the Fall 2017 Semester. These “tentative” honors will be based on all final grades received as of March 23, 2018. “Final” honors will be determined upon receipt of Spring Semester 2018 final grades and calculations of final GPAs. Diplomas, which will be mailed approximately four weeks after Commencement, will have the final designation for academic honors (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude). There are no longer honor cords for these academic honors.
Alpha Kappa Alpha members are to assemble together in the Lobby of the Times Union Center Ticket Office, as they will lead the procession to Commencement.
