Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake and Alex Lacamoire will receive honorary Doctor of Music degrees at Berklee College of Music’s commencement ceremony this spring.

Billboard reports that Berklee President Roger H. Brown will present the degrees to five-time Grammy award winning rapper-slash-producer Elliott, 10-time Grammy winner Timberlake and three-time Tony-award-winning musician Lacamoire (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen) during the ceremony. The honorary doctorates will serve as a recognition for their musical achievements and influence and for their “enduring global impact.”

“Being honored in this way by my alma mater means the world to me, you guys,” Berklee alum Lacamoire tweeted on Tuesday. “I’m over the moon with joy and I’m psyched to be grouped with these legends! See y’all in May.”

The commencement ceremony will take place in the Aggains Arena at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, on May 11.
