A.A. and A.A.S. degree recipients must complete at least 30 semester hours in residence at TCC to qualify for honors. Certificate of completion recipients must complete at least 15 semester hours in residence. (2013-2014 Tarrant County College Catalog, page 46.)

Spring 2015 Graduates: For the ceremony only, the honors designation on your name card is based on your completed coursework and cumulative TCC GPA through the fall semester. It is designed to recognize your achievement, but may (or may not) change when the GPA is computed with the final Spring 2015 grades.
Qualification for any of the above-listed honors designations is noted on your name card. If applicable, please pick up your honors cord at the specified table in the graduate staging area.
