Graduation Checklist
The OHSU School of Nursing has created a Graduation Checklist for 2015 for graduates to refer to during the months preceding Commencement.  This checklist outlines the items students will need to complete, including the application for degree, commencement RSVP, ordering your cap & gown, dates for class photos, etc.  Graduates are strongly encouraged to review this document to ensure all appropriate steps have been taken and all necessary paperwork has been submitted.

Check list will be posted in January 2015.

Application for Degree

Students must submit an Application for Degree to receive their diploma.  This form should be completed and returned to the OHSU Registrar no later than March 20, 2015 for Spring graduates. Students graduating in Fall, Winter, or Summer should submit their application for degree forms ONE TERM PRIOR to their completion date.

Commencement RSVP

In order to help with our planning process we will ask that all students eligible to participate in Commencement please submit an RSVP even if you are not planning to attend. We also need to have an approximate head count for your guests to help with planning. Tickets are not requested for guests.


We will begin accepting RSVPs Winter term 2015.


Graduation announcements are available for purchase through Royal-T Papers at www.royaltpapers.com.  Personalized OHSU Graduation Announcements may be purchased separately or in conjunction with cap/gown/announcement packages.


Regalia is required of all student graduates and faculty participating in the OHSU School of Nursing Commencement ceremony. Students participating in the 2015 Portland Commencement ceremony need to order their rental regalia online from Royal T Papers. LATE ORDERS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Nursing Pin

Undergraduate students have the option to order a nursing pin which will be "pinned" by a faculty pin-120representative at the Commencement ceremony.  The ordering process for 2015 will open in January.

Graduation Fair
