Important Tips to a Smooth Graduation

1. Check Your Degree Works Audit (undergrads only)

2. Meet with Your Advisor

Together you and your advisor will run your electronic degree audit and check your progress toward your degree. Your application to graduate should be submitted to the Registrar's Office at least 2 terms prior to anticipated degree completion.

Note: You no longer need a "petition to graduate." Paper/hard copy petitions are available if you would like one for personal use.

Distance Education Students: Students in the online degree completion programs offered through Oregon Tech Online should contact diana.evans@oit.edu two terms before graduation for correct applications and petitions.

3. Submit an Application for Degree

Submit the Application for Degree at least two terms prior to your anticipated degree completion term. Your records will be reviewed and you will be notified if additional courses need to be completed or outstanding items need to be taken care of in order for you to graduate.

4. Register for Commencement

An email will be sent to all graduating students with instructions on how to RSVP to Graduation. If you receive the invitation, but DO NOT plan on attending graduation, please contact the Assistant Registar at anne.malinowski@oit.edu. The Registrar's Office will mail your diploma to you, please ensure you have updated your current address.

5. Complete an Exit Interview & Clear Your Holds

All graduating seniors who have loans must participate in an exit interview in order to graduate.

Students should check their account for holds before graduation. Those who have holds placed on their accounts will not be given their diplomas (review the diploma release policy). Holds can result from very small charges, such as library fines or medicinal charges at the Student Health Center. Students can ensure that their accounts are free of holds on Web for Student.

6. Complete Degree Requirements

Requirements for Associates and Bachelors degrees at Oregon Institute of Technology are determined by, and vary with, academic departments. Curricular requirements for each degree can be found in the catalog under each department.
