Graduation with Distinction

Students graduating with the baccalaureate who are judged by their departments to have made outstanding contributions to their disciplines graduate “with distinction.” The Department of Sociology awards distinction for academic excellence within the discipline or extraordinary contributions to the department, university, or community.

Students who graduate "with distinction" will have it noted on their official SSU transcript and diploma, as well as in the commencement program. They are eligible to wear a special Distinction cord when they participate in the commencement ceremony in May.
