Congratulations! You are almost officially an Honors Graduate. Since this is a busy and stressful time for you we have generated a check list to help make things a little smoother. If you have any questions, please contact the HC advising office at 541-737-6414.
Verify you are on track for Graduation: See your major academic advisors and Honors College advisor to make sure you are on track for graduation.
Notify the HC of your graduation term: Automatic Institutional Awarding processes do not apply to Honors College students. You must inform an HC academic advisor of your graduation plans. It is recommended that you notify the HC at least three terms before you plan to graduate. It is your responsibility to notify an HC academic advisor if your planned graduation term changes.
Confirm your intended graduation term is officially noted in your MyDegrees notes. An example Institutional Awarding note would look like: "IASP23 - Institutional Awarding Spring 2023" or "IASU23 - Institutional Awarding Summer 2023." If you do not see this note contact an HC academic advisor.
Submit Thesis Defense Notification: After confirming a day and time for your thesis defense with your thesis mentor and committee members, notify the Honors College about your defense.
Upload Completed Thesis: Upload a PDF of your thesis to the Scholar's Archive no later than 5 p.m. Friday of week 10, or “Dead Week,” of your graduation term. This is a firm deadline. Refer to the Scholars Archive User Guide for submission instructions.
Complete the Exit Survey: Tell us about your experience in the HC Graduate Exit Survey.
Sign up for a Lifetime email account: This is a forwarding service, not an e-mail account.
Purchase HC Regalia: There are special garments for the OSU commencement ceremony that signify your achievement as an Honors College graduate. Information about the regalia, pricing, and when to pre-order can be found on our HC Regalia webpage.
