The information provided below details the process by which MSE undergraduate students apply to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University.


General university Commencement information for both graduates and their guests. Includes date and time, location, parking, speaker bio, and more.

Application to graduate

Plan ahead. Students should apply to graduate two terms prior to graduation. This is done by completing the online Application for Baccalaureate Degree form and meeting with the MSE Academic Advisor.
Please complete the Online Graduation Application and e-mail the MSE Undergrad Advisor to schedule an appointment to review your graduation status.

Students who have applied to graduate will receive further details from the College of Engineering early in the term that they are scheduled to receive their degree. This will include information on the ceremony itself, as well as attire that you will need should you participate.

The College of Engineering graduation web page provides further information about confirmation of graduation status, graduation with Latin honors, and important College of Engineering contact information.


It is critical that you remove any hold from your university account. You will not receive your diploma if you have any financial obligations left to the university. These can include, but are not limited to, tuition payments, exit interviews, library fines, parking tickets, etc. If these are not taken care of, the university will not release your diploma or your transcripts to you or future employers.

Exit surveys

We want to hear from you! Please complete two exit surveys, one for Engineering Career Services and one for our Department. You should receive a survey link to your email from your advisor around graduation.
