Each year the University Honors College hosts an awards ceremony and reception to recognize important individual accomplishments. Awards presented include those for the outstanding freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior students. The Honors faculty choose the winners. A number of competitive scholarships and special recognitions for faculty and friends of the Honors College are also presented.
Students receive a certificate upon completion of lower-division honors requirements (20 semester hours). Students graduating from the Honors College receive a bronze medallion (replica of the Honors College seal), a certificate of graduation, and recognition as an Honors College graduate on both the diploma and college transcript
