Graduate Student News
Unconscious Bias Tour
The CEO Action Check Your Blind Spots unconscious bias tour is a highly interactive and eye-opening mobile tour will use virtual reality and gaming technology to help our students, faculty, and local community better understand and recognize our own unconscious biases or blind spots that can narrow vision and influence our behaviors. At OSU, we continue to work hard to be the change we want to see. Our everyday actions play a role in cultivating a more diverse and inclusive community, and as part of the tour, we will join thousands nationwide in committing to action through the I Act On pledge.
The graduation application for students is completed through your student self-service account. This application becomes "unlocked" with an approved Graduation Clearance Form. You will not be able to complete the graduation application until you have submitted a Graduation Clearance Form through the Graduate College Round-Up System and it has been approved by both the Committee Chair and Graduate College.
You can go to https://commencement.okstate.edu/node/47 for instructions on how to apply to graduate.
