Graduates are candidates for academic honors if their cumulative GPA is 3.50 or higher and they have earned the appropriate number of hours. The honors category will be indicated next to the student’s name on the Commencement program. Academic honors candidates are eligible to wear honor regalia at the Commencement ceremony and in their photoshoot. Eligible students will be able to purchase their honor stole at the Registrar’s office. Please email StudentRecords@vinu.edu for more information.
Your name and degree will appear on your diploma as it reads in your graduation letter. The same information will be used in the commencement program. Please notify the Registrar’s Office immediately if this information needs to be updated. Once your degree is awarded, you will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office regarding degree confirmation and when to expect your diploma.
