Honors College Graduation

More than 25 years ago, the first group of graduates of the Honors College designed a recognition ceremony.  They called it a “Revocation” because it represented a calling back together of the students who were greeted four years earlier at their Freshman Convocation.  Revocation is our ceremony and the only University graduation ceremony that recognizes all of the graduates of the South Carolina Honors College.

At Revocation, our tradition is that we do not have a single valedictory speaker; instead, every student is invited to say thanks, offer congratulations, tell an inspiring and/or amusing story—to say, in other words, whatever you would like.   A Revocation ceremony is held for December and May graduates of the Honors College. 

Please note that University Commencement ceremony listed for the South Carolina Honors College is only for Honors College Students pursuing the BARSC specialized degree.

Students will receive an email invitation to RSVP for their guests and parents should receive a mailed save-the-date postcard.  For questions regarding Revocation, please contact Dr. Kay Banks at 803-777-2409 or bankshk@mailbox.sc.edu
