3 semesters before graduation

Turn in an application for Baccalaureate Degree. This application will be reviewed and you will receive feedback on your academic plan to complete degree requirements.

Your record will be audited the week before classes start. If there are any problems or issues that will hold up your graduation, you will be notified by e-mail. This allows you to make any scheduling changes that first week of classes.

Weeks 6-8

Your application will once again be audited. If there any remaining problems, you will be notified that your application has been pulled from the commencement list. Please contact Terri Hoying by e-mail at hoying.1@osu.edu if you believe there is discrepancy or if you are able to fix your problem.

Week 11 

A binder will be placed at the front desk of 120 Schoenbaum Hall with your name, major, hometown and possible honors (Final honors decisions are made when all classes are completed and grades turned in) for you to review. If there is any information that is not correct let the College office know by putting your request in writing and leaving it with the front desk staff or by e-mail.

Do not change your name in the binder - it may not get noticed. We use the address you list on your application, so if this is not correct, please leave your new address with the front desk staff. Mailing it will go out week six, so you will need to check this before week six of the semester.

Week 13

You will be receiving your graduation instructions this week. If you have not received any material by Monday of week 8, please see College office at Schoenbaum Hall.

Week 15

Fill out Absence form if you are unable to attend the commencement. Forms are available online at this website or commencement.osu.edu
