Your diploma will not be mailed until your financial holds have been released.

Diplomas are not presented at the commencement ceremony; they are ordered approximately six 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 the Registrar unless otherwise noted on the Degree/Diploma Application.

Degree/Diploma Application

A Degree/Diploma Application should be completed at the beginning of the term in which student is expected to complete their degree requirements.

What Appears on Diploma

  • Academic Unit

Note: Minors and major concentrations DO NOT appear on diplomas.

Incorrect Information

Graduates have six months from the receipt of their diploma to notify Office of the Registrar of grammatical errors on your diploma.  After this six-month period, a duplicate diploma order is required.

Name Changes

Graduates who want their names to appear differently on their diploma than it does on their registration must supply legal documentation (driver or marriage license, passport, divorce decree, etc) along with their diploma request.
