Verification of Degree Conferral

Participation in an OSU commencement ceremony does not constitute verification that individuals crossing the stage have completed all degree requirements. During the weeks following the ceremonies, each degree candidate’s records are reviewed by the candidate’s college to ensure completion of degree requirements. Upon verification, degrees are posted to official OSU transcripts in the Office of the Registrar, and diplomas are issued.
