Learn about undergraduate standalone certificates (Academic Regulation 32). Students will see their certificates reflected on their academic transcripts but they do not receive a diploma for the certificate.
During the term in which you have been identified as a graduation candidate, your record will be evaluated several times for graduation requirements. Any deficiencies will be recorded as a graduation hold on your student record.
Former OSU students who contact the Office of the Registrar asking for transcripts and diplomas sometimes discover they did not, in fact, graduate. Reasons for this may include:
|Academic Distinction||OSU GPA Range||Graduation Honor Cord Color|
|Magna Cum Laude||3.70-3.84||Gold|
|Summa Cum Laude||3.85-4.00||White|
Students who meet the criteria for Latin Honors can purchase commencement honor cords through the OSU Beaver Store.
