Graduate According to Plan, Guaranteed 

Milestones and enhanced experiences are included in your graduation plan to keep you on track for success at OHIO and in your career.

If you meet all the obligations in your OHIO Guarantee+ Graduation Plan, but cannot graduate on time and on plan due to the unavailability of necessary courses or other plan elements, Ohio University will find a way to make it right. This includes appropriate course substitutions or covering the tuition and fees of any additional required courses, if necessary.
