Graduate Awards

Graduate awards are presented annually at Commencement. Eligibility for most awards is based on academic record and determined by academic advisors. Graduates who meet the criteria are contacted as nominees and asked to submit materials for consideration. However, for three of the awards, Robert E. Kinsinger Award, Robert P. Mahoney Award and the Student Support Award, the selection process requires self-nomination.

For more information or if you have questions, contact commencement@excelsior.eduand be sure to reference the name of the award in the subject line of the email.
