Undergraduate Research Graduation Cord

The Undergraduate Research (UR) Graduation Cord was created by the Office of Undergraduate Research to recognize undergraduates who have participated in research experiences and other scholarly activities during their undergraduate academic tenure at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.  Attendance in a research course does not qualify as an undergraduate research experience.

Eligibility for requesting the UR graduation cord:

  • Must be a graduating senior;
  • Must have participated in a faculty-mentored research experience or an original scholarly or creative activity at any time in the undergraduate academic career;
  • Must have documented outcomes (a poster, journal article, proof of a creative performance) from the research experience, scholarly activity, or creative activity; and
  • Must have presented outcomes at a professional conference, or at an Office of Undergraduate Research Symposium, or published in an academic journal.

Undergraduate Research Participation Form:

  • Complete the Undergraduate Research Participation form, and
  • Obtain the signature of the faculty-mentor for the specified research experience, scholarly or creative activity. 

Form Submission

Forms are accepted from graduating seniors ONLY.  Submit forms to the Office of Undergraduate Research (422 Fort IRC Building) no later than November 10th for the Fall graduation or April 10th for the Spring graduation.
