Degree Clearance

Apply for Graduation

Students do not automatically get evaluated for graduation. They must apply for graduation via MyOSU (click on Student tab, then under My Student Stuff click on Apply to Graduate). It is recommended that students apply for graduation three terms prior to the term in which they intend to complete their degree requirements. Applications must be submitted no later than the end of the second week of the term in which the student plans to complete degree requirements

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 honors college curriculum receive a 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 awarding of your degree will be recorded as a graduation hold on your record and are visible in your MyDegrees account accessed through MyOSU.
