Graduate According to Plan, Guaranteed
Milestones and Story Builders 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.
Your Support Team
Your support team works with you to update your plan as necessary as you explore your interests and identify new opportunities. You will have intentional check-ins along the way to make sure you are on track.
Advisors are the Ohio University experts for your degree and major interests. They help you explore academic interests, identify resources for additional information and support, and develop your graduation guarantee plans.
Career strategists provide career direction to help assess your interests, abilities and values in your educational career path. They help you determine next steps and develop a plan to achieve your professional goals.
