Footnotes:

* Conferral Date — the graduation date that appears on the diploma and transcript.

** Expected Degree Award Date — the date the Office of the Registrar has completed final degree clearance and posts degree awarded status on transcripts. Only AFTER the degree awarded status is posted, are students' degrees officially awarded and visible on the official transcript.

***Once degrees have been awarded, students will receive an email at their OSU-issued email account inviting diploma orders. This email will come from diplomaorder@michaelsutter.com, so please be sure to look for this in your email.

For those who are eligible but are not attending Commencement, diplomas are available for pick-up after 12 pm on the first business day after Commencement. Students who have yet to be cleared for graduation (e.g. has graduation holds) will have to wait until after the Expected Degree Award Date listed above.

Students who have unarticulated or pending transfer work from other institutions that is applicable toward their degree will have to wait until their degrees are awarded before obtaining their diploma.

To be eligible, the Office of the Registrar must receive as close to final grades as possible from the instructor(s) teaching at the other institution. The instructor’s email must come from their institution email address and be sent to graduation@oregonstate.edu. It is the responsibility of the DPP student to notify their instructors to email OSU.
