An Academic Honors Convocation is held the Sunday prior to Commencement in May. School/division deans will contact candidates for graduation who are eligible to be recognized for outstanding academic performance during this event and thus wear honor cords during the Commencement ceremonies.

  • Honors Cords will be distributed at the Academic Honors convocation at the Stem Concert Hall on Sunday preceding the Commencement ceremonies.
  • If you believe that you are entitled to wear a cord and have not been contacted to participate in the Academic Honors Convocation two weeks prior to Commencement, please contact your school/division office immediately.
  • The wearing of an honor cord during Commencement does not automatically guarantee the awarding of degree honors.
  • For Academic Honors convocation, the GPA does not include the current (spring) semester grades.

Honors Recipients and Cords: Indiana University recognizes three levels of distinction for undergraduate degrees:

  1. Highest Distinction – Red and White Cord (3.95 GPA or higher)
  2. High Distinction – White Cord (3.80 GPA to 3.94 GPA)
  3. Distinction – Red Cord (3.60 GPA to 3.79 GPA)
