Convocation Credit System

To receive convocation credit, students must 1) swipe his or her own Centre College ID card at a convocation station; 2) be seated before the program begins; 3) remain present throughout the full program; 4) swipe his or her own Centre College ID card before leaving the event. Convo credit can only be given if ID cards are accurately swiped in and swiped out. Student ID cards may need to be replaced in the Student Life Office if the card does not register in the computer swipe system. It is the student's responsibility to bring Centre ID cards to convocations and to make sure the card swipes accurately. This policy will be strictly enforced, and convocation credit will not be given to students who arrive late or who leave early or whose cards do not work in the convocation system.

Students participating onstage or working backstage at an event can receive convocation credit by signing a Convocation Credit Form for Student Participants and Workers, available in the Dean's Office. The responsible faculty or staff member must submit the completed form to the Convocation Coordinator the day following the event. Most events given convocation status are worth one credit. Special events designated as campus-wide convocations are worth two credits. Any event worth more than one credit will be indicated as such in the Convocation Calendar and Notesworthy. Normally, the Opening Day, Founders Day, and Honors convocations are worth 2 credits.

Convocation credit is entered and maintained by computer. Students may check their convocation credit status by going to the current students listing on the Centre home page and selecting Personal/Convocation Credit. The individual student is responsible for verifying the computer record's accuracy and for notifying the Convocation Coordinator in the Dean's Office within one week of the convocation in question. Students are urged to check their convocation credits frequently throughout the academic year. Students are encouraged to not wait until the end of the year to obtain the required 12 credits.
