Holds & To Do List

Click on the item on the list for details about the hold or to do item, including which office placed it and what must be done to clear it. Some holds prevent registration until the hold is removed. The Hold item "Conditional/Provisional Admission" does not block registration.

Conditional/Provisional Admission

Upon an offer of admission, all students are required to provide an official transcript from each institution where the student has earned a bachelor's degree and any post-bachelor's degree. The transcript must show the degree and date it was earned.

Students who are not able to submit an official transcript showing the degree conferred must submit an official transcript showing all grades earned to date, plus an enrollment letter that includes the following:

  • Confirmation of the expected degree conferral date. 
  • Be on official university letterhead from the college/university registrar or other academic official who is able to confirm completion of degree requirements.

Once the degree has been conferred, you must submit an official transcript showing the degree and date earned. The final transcript must be submitted to the Graduate College prior to the end of your first term of enrollment. You are not permitted to enroll for a second term until the final/official transcript has been received.

If you will not complete your degree on schedule, contact the Graduate College for directions.

Submitting official degree transcripts and documents


Advisors are assigned by the academic department after an admission offer is made. If no advisor is listed, refer academic and registration questions to the graduate director in your academic department.

Tuition & Fees

  • If you are in a traditional program on the Athens campus, review the "Athens Graduate Tuition" schedule.
  • If you are enrolling in an online or regional campus program, review the "Graduate Programs with Differential Tuition" schedule.
  • If you are enrolling through a regional campus and your program is not on the list for differential tuition, review the "Regional Graduate Tuition" schedule.

Fees are assessed when you register for classes. 

Residency for Tuition Purposes

All admitted students are notified in their admission letter about their status as an Ohio resident for tuition purposes. If you believe you are incorrectly classified, contact the Graduate College for assistance. Petitions to change from non-resident status must be initiated before the start of the term in which you are seeking the change.
