KCTCS Board of Regents Policies
4.17 Policy on Honorary Degrees
The KCTCS Board of Regents authorizes the individual colleges to award honorary associate degrees in humane letters (honoris causa) to individuals who have contributed significantly to the awarding college or KCTCS. When an individual’s exceptional contributions merit such consideration, the college president/chief executive officer shall make the recommendation for an honorary degree to the President of KCTCS for recommendation to the Board of Regents for approval. Approval shall be granted by the Board of Regents prior to the award being made.
