Application for degree

The OHSU Application for Degree can be accessed from the OHSU Registrar’s website or from within the OHSU Degree Audit.

Students who also complete a minor at Oregon Tech will need to contact the OIT registrar’s office for the most current process.

Students are encouraged to participate in the Oregon Tech graduation ceremony and will need to complete the participation form found in section 3 on this OIT Graduate page.

More details

Traditionally seniors have put together a slide show to be shown at the convocation ceremony. The production is up to the class and is shown on a repeat cycle while guests are coming in to be seated. A copy must be given to the nursing department one week prior to convocation. The class votes on a student speaker, and also votes on a faculty speaker.  This is usually done during spring term.  

What to wear

Graduation robes should be worn for the OHSU convocation with both caps and robes to be worn for the OIT commencement. Nursing pins are options. Purchasing information will be provided to students in late winter term or early spring term, prior to graduation.
