Graduation Preparation

Graduation marks the culmination of your achievements as a UConn student. Completion of the Honors Scholar graduation requirements recognizes you as a UConn “Honors Scholar.” If you are completing a University Scholar project, you are close to adding UConn’s highest academic designation to your profile.

If you expect to graduate within the next two years, consider what you need to do to get ready:

  • Review your progress in completing requirements. Refresh your memory of the general requirements for graduating as an Honors Scholar and graduating as a University Scholar.
  • Review your transcript after the end of each semester to be sure you are receiving “Honors credit” for your undergraduate Honors courses. (Although it won’t say so on your transcript, graduate courses graded B- or better will also be regarded as generating “Honors credit.”) You will not graduate with an Honors award unless your transcript reflects the required Honors coursework.
