Prepare for Graduation

As of Spring 2019, undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students no longer need to apply for graduation, as OSU implemented Institutional Awarding of degrees. Graduate students will still need to apply for graduation.

Double Degrees, Dual Majors, Honors Degrees, Certificates

According to Academic Regulation 26, a student may earn two or more degrees simultaneously. A student must complete a minimum of 32 credits above the minimum number of credits needed for one of the degrees. Students may also earn two or more majors within a single degree program, per Academic Regulation 27. Students completing the University Honors College curriculum receive an honors degree in the college of their major, e.g., HBS Honors Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, or HBA Honors Bachelor of Arts in English.

Monitoring Your Progress

The Office of the Registrar will communicate your progress to you in two ways:

  1. Emails will be sent to your ONID email account with information about the clearance process and any deficiencies you may have.
  2. Any deficiencies that would prevent the your degree being awarded will be recorded as a graduation hold on your record and are visible in your MyDegrees account accessed through MyOSU.
