Get Ready to Graduate!

Students who graduated or will graduate between Summer 2019 and Summer 2020, and undergrads who will graduate in Fall 2020, are invited to participate in the commencement ceremony. Only seniors with at least 135 earned and posted credits by the end of Winter 2020 term (graduating in the above-mentioned terms) can participate. NO EXCEPTIONS. Here’s how:

  1. Register for the commencement ceremony. If you do not register, then we will not have a diploma ready for you.
  2. Attend the Grad Fair at the OSU BeaverStore. All candidates must wear a traditional cap and gown. Purchase yours at the Grad Fair! Email or call 800-595-0357.
  3. Ensure all degree requirements and associated deadlines are met.
  4. Check your OSU email and review this website for details about deadlines, photography, regalia and receiving your diploma.
