University Honors Program

Ordering your Chord(s) for Graduation

Congratulations! You're graduating! You've bought your cap and gown. Your whole family is coming down for the big day, and you want to make sure you look good for all of the photogs snapping your picture so you can remember that moment for years to come.

Show off your accomplishments by purchasing honor chord(s) for your respective honor societies. You've earned the right. Find the information for ordering below.

PLEASE NOTE:

Make sure you check with your faculty advisor first to determine whether they still have some in stock. For those who don't, you may be able to order them online using the links provided below. Some national chapters, however, will only ship (bulk) orders placed by the faculty sponsor, in which case you would have to contact them directly (the link to faculty sponsor has been provided for these specific cases. For general reference, please see the Honor Societies main page). In those instances, we have tried to make all the information available as accurately as possible.
