Student Connection

Honors Convocation

Washtenaw Community College hosts two Honors Convocations each year to recognize students who have achieved High Honors on the Dean’s List. The Winter Convocation takes place in January and the Spring Convocation takes place in May. The Convocations take place in the Morris Lawrence Building. Students should check their WCC email a few weeks before the ceremonies in January or May as eligible participants will receive an email invitation.
What should honorees expect at the convocations?
