Requests for honors must be submitted on the ASLHS graduation order form and arrive by the posted deadlines. Only the sponsor of the ASLHS chapter may request honors materials. Payment must accompany the order or materials will not be delivered. Only schools with an ASLHS chapter on campus are eligible to award graduation recognition materials. Orders will ship in March each school year.
ASLHS recognizes outstanding academic achievement in ASL studies with three honors:
Alice Cogswell Medal
Laurent Clerc Medal
To receive one or more of the honors, students must meet the minimum eligibility requirements for each, which includes both GPA and community service hours. For any honors to be conferred, a student must attend a campus with an active ASLHS chapter and have a sponsor that is in good standing with the ASLTA. For purposes of grade point average computation, eligible ASL coursework includes ASL language, ASL literature, and deaf studies. Interpretation coursework is not eligible.
