Latin
a degree honoris causa ("for the sake of the honor") or ad honorem ("to the honor"), is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation , residence, a dissertation and the passing of comprehensive examinations .

An example of identifying a recipient of this award is as follows: Doctorate
