Honor Societies recognize the outstanding progress students have made in their respective fields of study. Many honor societies have a service component while the students are pursuing their degree. Students may join honor societies based on the given academic requirements of the national organization, in conjunction with those of the chapter at the Metropolitan State University of Denver.
Students who are members of an honor society, which has been approved by the Commencement Committee, may wear honor regalia at Commencement. Graduates who belong to an academic honor society should contact the faculty advisor of that society to determine how honor regalia is obtained. Graduates who are members of such societies may wear honor cords, stoles, or medallions at Commencement, if the society provides a way for members to obtain such regalia. The Commencement Office does not make arrangements for the individual honor societies.
