Degree Application

Students are required to complete and submit their application for graduation and signed program plan to the Graduate Registrar’s Office by the following deadlines:

September 20th for a December (Fall) program completion

November 20th for a May (Spring) program completion

February 20th for a July or August (Summer) program completion

We are currently accepting applications from our Spring 2015 and Summer 2015 program completion candidates.  These are the candidates who will complete their degree programs at the end of our Spring 2015 term in May of 2015 or at the end of our Summer 2015 term in either July or August of 2015.

Step 1

Log into your WebAdvisor account and select the option “Degree Application.”

Here you will select the degree/certificate program you have on your record that you are completing and hit submit.  More than one program may appear.  Be sure to select the degree program and not a license or endorsement program.  On the WebAdvisor form that displays, you will enter your name in the manner you wish it to appear on your diploma.  Review/correct your diploma mailing address.  Select the term in which you will be completing your degree and provide your hometown and state information, which will be placed in the commencement program.  At the bottom of the form, enter you height and weight information, which we use to order your regalia. 

Please note:  Students applying for certificates in Documentary Studies or our Oregon Writing Project: Certificate in Teaching Writing need not provide height and weight information on their applications.  Certificate students are included in the commencement program but do not participate in the ceremony as a candidate.

Step 2

Log into your WebAdvisor account and select the option “Program Evaluation.”

You will select your degree/certificate program and hit submit.  Next review, print, and sign your Program Evaluation.

Step 3

Submit your signed program evaluation in person to the Graduate Registrar’s Office in Rogers Hall Room 301 or fax it to us at 503-768-6035 by the deadlines indicated above.  You may also scan it and email it to us at

You’re finished!

You will be sent a Graduation Application Evaluation email once your adviser and your department chair have reviewed your program evaluation.  You will also be sent an email in April with detailed information regarding our commencement ceremony.
