Diploma Information

Diplomas are not presented at the commencement ceremony; they are ordered approximately 6 weeks after the degree is granted. Diplomas are not prepared on campus; therefore, a guaranteed delivery date is not possible.

Diplomas are mailed to the address recorded in the Office of Registration and Records unless otherwise noted on the Degree/Diploma Application.

Please note:  If you have a financial hold, your diploma will not be mailed to you until the financial hold has been released.
