If you will be graduating with a minor, use the minor planning form or submit an approved form from the department granting the minor. Some minors require a department signature; see the form for details.
Submit this form at the same time as your Application for Graduation.
Applications will be audited the week before classes start. If there are any problems or issues, you will be notified via email. This allows you to make any scheduling changes the first week of classes.
Applications will once again be audited. If there are any remaining problems, you will be notified via your OSU email. Please contact Terri Hoying by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe there is discrepancy or if you are able to fix your problem.
No new applications will be accepted after the tenth Friday of the term of graduation.
Your personal information will be available to review; this includes name on the diploma, specializations, minors, 2nd majors, hometown, and possible honors distinction (final honors decisions are made when all classes are completed and grades turned in). If there is any information that is not correct contact Terri Hoying by e-mail at email@example.com.
You will receive graduation instructions and line number this week. Because students receive their own diplomas at graduation, line numbers are assigned to each student in order to receive the correct diploma.
