Graduation cords for student organizations and clubs may only be worn if they have been awarded by the club’s national/umbrella organization and the cords appropriately represent that organization. Student clubs/organizations must have their cords approved by Student Affairs by sending an email to with documentation identifying the cord’s colors, criteria for receiving the cords and proof that the cords have been designated by the national/umbrella organization.

The PharmD program awards honor cords based on overall G.P.A. and those students graduating Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude will be notified via email regarding pick-up.

Please contact if you have any questions.
