Every Burnett Honors Scholar who successfully completes the University Honors or Honors in the Major program receives an Honors Medallion. During the week of Commencement, we hold the Honors Graduation Banquet to recognize Honors graduates and award these medallions. During the Burnett Honors College Graduation Banquet, which the president, provost and deans attend, the student is vested by the BHC deans with their Honors Medallion. This medallion is then worn at Commencement as part of the academic regalia.

Students unable to attend the Burnett Honors College Graduation Banquet may pick up their medallion at the front desk of the Burnett Honors College. Students will be informed of pick up times during the weeks leading up to the banquet.



  • DATE: Thursday, Dec. 13
  • TIME: 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
  • LOCATION: Pegasus Grand Ballroom, UCF Student Union
