Degree Clearance

Application for Graduation

Students do not automatically get evaluated for graduation. They must apply for graduation via the online application for graduation available in their MyOSU account. 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 Regulations 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 Regulations 27. Students completing the Honors College curriculum receive an 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.

Advisor & Registrar Roles in Degree Clearance

The Office of the Registrar monitors institutional requirements as defined in Academic Regulation 25, while the academic college and departmental advisors monitor baccalaureate core, college, major, option, and minor requirements.
