Honor Cords and Stoles

Various organizations and departmental honor societies have stoles and/or cords available for their cohort. Graduates should reach out to any organizations they belonged to on campus to see if they participate.

Currently, Adelphi does not provide cords or stoles for Latin Honors. Anticipated Latin Honors are noted next to each graduate’s name in the program.
