Honors Convocation

Washtenaw Community College hosts two Honors Convocations each year to recognize students who have achieved high honors on the Dean's List.

The Winter Convocation, scheduled annually in January will honor:

  • All full-time (12 credits or more) Fall students receiving high honors (GPA 3.8 and above).
  • All honors (GPA 3.5 to 3.79) and high honors (GPA 3.8 to 4.0) graduate candidates from December.
  • All part-time (minimum of fifteen 15 credits over three specific semesters) students receiving high honors (GPA 3.8 and above).

The Spring Convocation, scheduled annually May will honor:

  • All full time (12 credits or more) Winter students (GPA 3.8 and above).
  • All honors (GPA 3.5 to 3.79) and high honors (GPA 3.8 to 4.0) graduate candidates for May, June, and August.

Note: Students must have a grade point average of 3.8 or higher for any of the three specific semesters. "P" and "S" grades are not used in the GPA calculation.

What should honorees expect at the convocations?

  • The ceremony may happen in-person or virtual depending on local restrictions and safety guidelines.
  • Representatives of the college (such as the President of the college and a student speaker) will speak at the ceremony.
