The Online Application for Graduation (OAG) for fall 2012 will be available May 22 - June 15. The OAG has replaced the paper degree petition and all students who want to graduate in the fall must file one. From 5/22 - 6/15 students can apply for graduation for free. From June 16 - June 30, it will cost $50 to file the OAG. After June 30th, you cannot file an OAG and, therefore, would have to wait until spring 2013 to graduate.

Information on the OAG and how to file it can be found on the registrar's website here:

So, if you would like to file a new application for graduation in fall 2012, here are the steps that you need to follow. Please note that this new system relies on YOU to be responsible for following through with all the steps. Don't do it? You won't graduate.

1. Familiarize yourself with the new OAG. Go to and read through the information. A downloadable instructional PDF can be printed out here:

2. Complete the OAG via OSCAR. Instructions on where to access the OAG in OSCAR are in the document listed in #1. (OSCAR> Student Services & Financial Aid> Student Records> Apply to Graduate) If your major is listed incorrectly or you have a declared minor that is missing, STOP IMMEDIATELY and email the Office of the Registrar Degree Certification team at If your minor is not appearing because you haven't yet declared it, then you must do that first (refer to instructions in point #1 with information on how to do this).

3. Once you hit "submit," continue on to the Georgia Tech Exit Survey, using the link provided.

4. Schedule a *HALF HOUR* advising appointment with Dr. D'Unger at Appointments will be available beginning in mid-June.

5. Access the online HTS post-graduation contact form here and the HTS undergraduate exit survey here. PRINT OUT BOTH FORMS AND COMPLETE THEM. BRING THEM TO YOUR ADVISING APPOINTMENT WITH DR. D'UNGER.

In sum, you must complete the OAG, fill out the Georgia Tech exit survey, have a 1/2 hour appointment with Dr. D'Unger, and turn in both the HTS contact form and HTS exit survey to Dr. D'Unger (at the advising appointment) in order to be eligible to graduate in fall 2012. The same policies and procedures will be in place for all subsequent semesters. Questions? Email Dr. D as soon as possible.
