Veteran & U.S. Military Service Recognition Cord

Oregon State University recognizes the significant contribution and sacrifices made by OSU students who are U.S. military service members and veterans. Students may receive a red, white, and blue Military Service Recognition Cord to be worn at commencement. 

Students who are eligible to participate in Commencement  and have registered for the Commencement Ceremony may pick up their recognition cord at the Office of the Registrar in Kerr Administration Building, Room 102 during normal business hours. 

Students who are eligible for graduation, but choosing not to participate in commencement may also receive their recognition cord at the same time that they receive their diploma.  They may receive it when they pick up the diploma in person at the Registrar’s Office or if arraignments have been made to have their diploma shipped to them a recognition cord will be included.
