Application for Awarding of Master's Degree, Doctoral Degree, or Graduate Certificate
Students must file an Application for Awarding of Master's Degree, Doctoral Degree, or Graduate Certificate with OGS by the first Friday of the anticipated term of graduation; see the Graduate Candidates Deadlines for specific dates. A $30 charge will be applied to the student’s PSU account after the application is processed by OGS.
As a one-time courtesy, students who do not complete degree requirements can have their application for graduation carried forward to a future term (typically the next term, but it could be at maximum up to one year in advance). To request that an application for graduation be carried, students must contact OGS in writing and provide an explanation for the graduation delay. If students do not graduate a second time, the application for graduation will be dropped; they will then need to reapply for graduation by the appropriate deadline (and will be assessed a new fee).
If you have any questions about applying for graduation, please contact our office at 503-725-8410 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit us at XSB 184.

If you are a Doctoral student, please see the Summary of Procedures for Doctoral Degrees for information about additional requirements for graduation.
