Since 2012, Tompkins Cortland Community College has recognized a special segment of each graduating class. The “Graduates of Note” designation was created to pay tribute to graduating students who achieved notable success in their respective degree program. 

The selection of the honorees is done by the chair of the academic program, often with consultation with other members of the faculty in the program.
