Graduation is not the same thing as the Commencement Ceremony. Graduation is the process by which degree completion is confirmed and certified. The Commencement Ceremony celebrates that academic achievement.
Degree completion is not automatic. You must apply to have your degree conferred, even if you do not plan to attend a commencement ceremony.
Certificate conferral is not automatic. You must complete the Graduation Application in your My Ohio Student Center. If you do not see a certificate option in the application, you need to update your record with the Graduate College. Before proceeding with the application, contact your graduate program for help submitting an update of program form..
