In light of the spread of the coronavirus and the associated effects on society, RWTH Aachen University has decided to cancel the Graduation Celebration this year. It will instead take place on the first weekend of September 2021.

At the Graduation Celebration on September 5th, 2020 in the dressage stadium of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein, all of our graduates should share the spotlight, no matter what type of degree or grades they earned. Special recognition should, however, be given to those who completed their studies or doctoral degree with honors. So that’s what we will do. This year, the prize winners from summer semester 2019 and winter semester 2019/20 will be honored. Following a long-standing tradition, RWTH Aachen University and the Gesellschaft der Freunde und Förderer der RWTH Aachen e. V.,proRWTH for short, will once again jointly award the Springorum commemorative coin and the Borchers plaque.
The Springorum Commemorative Coin, honors the best graduates in Diplom, Magister, and Master courses of study (up to 10 percent of a class cohort) in all of the faculties. The Borchers Badge is awarded to doctoral candidates, who passed their doctoral examinations "summa cum laude."
The award ceremony will take place in the separate proRWTH area on the grounds of the Graduation Celebration from 11:30am. All award winners will be informed directly by mail and email about their award. This letter also describes the procedure for purchasing the special tickets, which entitle the holder to enter the Graduation Celebration as well as the proRWTH area.
If you have any questions about the award event, please contact the Organizing Team.
