Honorary Posthumous Degrees
Deceased students who were enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate degree program may be eligible for an honorary posthumous degree. The student would be eligible if he or she was (1) within two semesters of completing his or her undergraduate degree program or within one semester of completing his or her graduate degree program; (2) registered in a Berkeley College degree program within 12 months of the date of death; and (3) in good academic standing at the time of death. Exceptions may be considered by the President of the College in extraordinary circumstances. Family members and/or legal guardians of the deceased student must submit an honorary posthumous degree request in writing and provide a copy of the student’s death certificate.
