A final graduation audit for undergraduate degree candidates will be sent to your head adviser in mid-April. Contact your academic advisor and follow up on any contact your advisor may make with you.
If you’re a graduate degree candidate, you can check clearance requirements and deadlines at oregonstate.edu/dept/grad_school/deadlines.php.
If you’re a summer 2013 undergraduate degree candidate, the clearance for your degree will take place during the summer term. If you are a fall 2013 undergraduate degree candidate, the clearance for your degree will take place during the fall term.
All incomplete grades (I or I/Alternate Grades) for courses that will be included in the completion of institutional and/or major degree requirements must be resolved. All I/Alternate Grades that are pending at the time the degree is conferred will revert to the alternate grade. You should resolve all I/Alternate Grades before degrees are conferred at the end of the term in which you have applied to graduate. For more information, go to oregonstate.edu/registrar/incomplete-grades.
All off-campus credits from transfer institutions that are required for your degree must be on file with the Office of the Admissions.
For spring term graduates, to be eligible to receive your diploma at Commencement all incomplete grades for required courses must be resolved and transfer credits on file before May 10.
The Grad Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 16-17 in the OSU Beaver Store – Book Level.

Oregon State faculty will award preliminary grades to spring term graduating students by May 13. If your ability to graduate is in question, your advisor or the Office of the Registrar will notify you. If your status is doubtful, you may still take part in Commencement and may even receive your diploma at the ceremony. However, based on your final grades, your graduation may be cancelled and you will need to complete deficient/missing requirements at a later date. Graduate degree candidate grades will be reported to the Graduate School. If you’re a graduate degree candidate, you may participate in Commencement only if all of your degree requirements are completed by the spring term deadline. For more information, go to oregonstate.edu/dept/grad_school/deadlines.php.
To participate in Commencement, you must pre-register. Go to oregonstate.edu/main/online-services, log in, then click on the Student Records link and choose Commencement Attendance Confirmation. You must be a graduate (or anticipated graduate) of one of the following terms: summer 2012, fall 2012, winter 2013, spring 2013, summer 2013 or fall 2013.
