Honor Cords

The sale of honor cords are managed by the Golden Key Honor Society.  Students graduating with honors will be identified on a listing provided by the Dean's office of their school or college. Honor cords may be purchased for $15.00 during cap and gown distribution. Before attempting to purchase a cord, graduates must confirm their eligibility for honors according to the listing at the "cord table" at distribution.

If you believe you are eligible and you are not on the list, the Honor Cord staff will provide you with a form to take to your Dean's office to resolve the issue. If you receive clearance to purchase an honor cord, you must bring the confirmation form with you and present it at the honor cord table during distribution hours.

Questions related to your eligibility for honor cords should be directed to your academic unit.

Souvenir Tassels

The University of Louisville souvenir tassel is black and red with a special tag displaying the Minerva Seal and may be purchased online when ordering your cap and gown or you may purchase a souvenir tassel during cap and gown distribution.

Commencement ceremony information will be posted and updated periodically on this web site.
