All seniors must meet with Dr. Lorna Ronald each semester to discuss their pre-certification status and post-graduation plans. The semester prior to graduation, students must apply for graduation with the registrar by the university deadline. Email Dr. Ronald at lorna.m.ronald@njit.edu

Completion of all Honors College requirements entitles you to:

  1. a diploma with the Honors College designation
  2. the Honors College distinction on your final transcript
  3. enter the commencement procession with other Honors students
  4. wear the special Honors College medal at commencement (students must complete the Honors graduating senior survey)
  5. receive an Honors College certificate of completion
  6. become a member of the powerful Honors alumni network

There is a final review after all grades have been reported.
