Distinguished Alumni Awards

The Oakton Distinguished Alumni Awards recognize former Oakton students who have excelled professionally and provided inspirational service to the community.

Nominees must have earned an Oakton degree or certificate, or completed a minimum of 24 credit hours.

Nominations may include a current résumé or biography, as well as supplementary materials that address the nominee's accomplishments (e.g., news articles, brochures, photos). Nominees may self-nominate or be nominated by someone else. If self-nominating, at least one letter of recommendation must be submitted.

Awardees must be present to accept their award at the Distinguished Alumni Reception, to take place at Oakton in the spring. The Office of Alumni Relations will contact all awardees during the fall with additional details. Awardees must also agree to return to campus at least once within the academic year (in addition to accepting the award) to be a guest speaker at an alumni event and/or participate in a student engagement activity.
