You should monitor your degree requirements throughout your academic career to ensure that you are on track when graduation approaches.

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.

Celebrate your accomplishment by receiving the diploma for which you’ve worked so hard. Better yet, receive it at the commencement ceremony and celebrate with your friends, family, and classmates.

Statement of Degree: A Statement of Degree is a good-faith letter indicating your anticipated graduation date. Most employers and graduate schools will accept a Statement of Degree until your degree is actually cleared and posted on the transcript. The Registrar's Office issues Statements of Degree only for undergraduate students; graduate students must contact the Graduate School, graduate.school@oregonstate.edu.
