Expectations of students to meet the Transcript Notation requirement:

  • Involvement in all major phases of a project including conception, implementation, and presentation. This will generally involve sustained work over multiple quarters, resulting in an original contribution relative to the discipline. 
  • A project presentation that must be to an audience that extends beyond the immediate research group or creative context of the student (two options for presenting can be found here).
  • Evidence of the presentation must be submitted and materials must be deposited into the OSU Scholars Archive (instructions are here). 
  • Endorsement of the application by an OSU faculty member, verifying satisfaction of the criteria described above.
  • Completed Form A (PDF) or Form B (PDF).


Expectations of the student's faculty mentor:

  • The mentor will certify that the student has met the expectations of research/creativity for such notations (see this page for details).
  • The mentor will indicate whether a student’s efforts are best recognized with a designation as a Research Fellow or Arts Fellow.
