The academic honor stole is a white satin stole that bears the University seal on one side and your Latin academic honors or program recognitions in script on the other side. Both the seal and script are custom embroidered. To be eligible to wear an academic honor stole for graduation you must have earned a minimum 3.50 GPA, have completed at least 60 hours of my college coursework here at CCU and be graduating with a Bachelor's degree (Graduate students are not eligible for Latin Academic Honors). Graduate candidates who are memebers of the following programs may also be eligible to receive an honor stole: Honors Program, Jackson Scholar, Wall Fellow or Swain Scholar.
All students who meet the minimum GPA requirement and the 60 hour requirement will receive an email from Dr. Tankersley notifying them of eligibility. If you did NOT receive this email and believe that you might be eligible, please contact Ms. Stacy Wyeth (email@example.com) in the Registrar's Office.
Stoles with one script are $45. Each additional script is an additional $5.
