Last day to apply for graduation for summer semester. Commencement is held at the conclusion of fall semester.

*Students who want to graduate this semester but fail to apply for graduation by this date must pay a $100.00 fine to have their graduation application processed. 

Note: Official degree conferral date is August 17.

Graduation is not automatic. To graduate, all students (undergraduate, graduate, and medical) must apply no later than the graduation application deadline for the term in which graduation is planned.

To Apply:

Sign in to My OHIO Student Center Click on "other academic..." Choose "Apply for Graduation OHIO.” You will be taken to the graduation application. Respond to the questions and complete the fields in the application. Click “Save and continue” to progress through the application. Your application is not complete until you have clicked “Complete Application” on the page that summarizes all of your application details. This will finalize your application and you will not be able to make any changes after this step. Once you complete the application, any changes must be made by sending an email to or by calling 740.593.4196. Within the application you may optionally “Save” your application prior to completing it. For example, if you don’t have time to complete it at once or need to gather information prior to finalizing, you can logout after you have clicked one of the “Save and continue” buttons. Your application will be saved and you will be able to log on before the deadline to complete the other items and finalize your application by clicking “Complete Application.” If you have initiated but not completed the application process, you will receive an email a few days before the application deadline reminding you to finalize your application. If you don’t finalize your application by clicking “Complete Application,” you will not be considered for graduation, your name will not appear in the commencement program, and your account will not be assessed a graduation application fee. You will receive an email with a confirmation number for your application for graduation. If you do not have a confirmation number, then your graduation application has not been submitted. Students that have requested confidentiality of their educational records must release the confidentiality hold in order to be included in the commencement program.
