If requirements are not met.

Any unmet requirements indicated on the degree audit must be resolved prior to a degree being awarded. In the event that a student is unable to graduate at the end of the term for which he or she has applied, the student should be directed to cancel his or her existing application for graduation and submit a new application for the future term in which the student will complete the requirements.

When will degrees be awarded?

Degree clearance requires approximately 4 weeks after the conclusion of the term. When degrees are awarded they will be posted to student transcripts where they may view it. Also, the Office of the Registrar will send a notice of congratulation to the student ONID email address once the degree is awarded. It is the responsibility of the student to confirm their degree award.
