An honorary degree or a degree honoris causa (Latin: “for the sake of the honor”) is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation, residence, study and the passing of examinations. The degree is typically a doctorate or, less commonly, a master’s and bachelor’s degree, and may be awarded to someone who has no prior connection with the academic institution. The degree is often conferred as a way of honouring a distinguished visitor’s contributions to a specific field or to society in general.
An honorary degree is entirely legitimate and the title conferred may be used like any other. The degree is awarded to those who have demonstrated a Honoris Causa, or cause to be honored. This program is offered only to a select group of accomplished individuals such as yourself. As a professional, a degree or additional degree will allow you to make a greater impact. The expedient way of showing the world your knowledge, abilities, experience and talents is with your degree and use of your titles.The degree is not recognized by employers as having the same stature as a corresponding earned degree and should not be represented as such. It is sometimes recommended that such degrees be listed in one’s CV as an award and not in their education section.
NMU believes that weightage should be given for learning that occurs outside the classroom by building upon previous accomplishments. Degrees are granted based on evaluation of past accomplishment and competencies, and will be done on an individual basis by qualified experts. Recipients of honorary degrees do not earn the degree through academic achievements, rather with generous and altruistic actions or lifetime accomplishments that benefit a community, nation or humanity in general.
We allow candidates to apply for consideration for the degree. Send along a Resume or brief autobiographical sketch. Tell us about yourself, your education, your abilities, talents, accomplishments, etc. You may choose to email / upload copies of that which you have written or that which was written about you.
You can also recommend others for a degree (nomination by a third party). Email / upload a Resume or brief autobiographical sketch of the person whom you nominate.
The candidates may acquire the integrated bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees directly after schooling or bachelors and masters or the masters and doctoral degrees after bachelor’s degree. They can get the relevant degrees together.
The Honorary Degrees are conferred with all rights, honours and privileges appertaining thereto, directly by NU, USA, to the student upon meeting the Institutions Graduation requirements and their financial obligations
