CWU Commencement

Faculty Tenure and Promotion Reception Convocation

CWU’s Honors Convocation will be held Friday, June 10, at 7:00 p.m in McConnell Auditorium. The annual event celebrates the achievements of the President's Scholars, Dean's Scholars, graduates of the William O. Douglas Honors College and Science Honors Program, and the recipient of the Master's Thesis award.

Students completing degree requirements during the summer will not be eligible for honors recognition until the following spring commencement ceremony.  At least 75 of the credits required for the degree must be earned at Central with a minimum of 60 credits in courses taken on the A-F grading scale.

To qualify as a Dean's Scholar, a student must have a cumulative GPA that places them in the next 5 percent of their college.

Students who are academically qualified for honors at convocation will receive an invitation to this year's event.
