Students must submit a petition to graduate to the Ohio State ATI Academic Affairs Office no later than the first two weeks of the semester prior to the semester in which they expect to graduate. The Ohio State ATI Academic Affairs Office will audit the student's academic record to verify that they have completed all graduation requirements. It is the student's responsibility to make sure they complete the required courses and meet the credit hours needed for graduation.
