Diploma Information for Winter 2022

If requirements are complete, the diploma will be released by mail four-six weeks following the end of term.  Please provide a diploma address through the commencement task list by December 16. If you do not provide a diploma address, your diploma will be sent to your permanent address on file.

For domestic diploma addresses, mailing will be with the US Postal Service. For international diploma addresses, Federal Express can be used if prepayment is arranged in advance. If mailed Federal Express, a tracking number will be emailed to you.

International Students

As a reminder, your degree notation will appear on your official transcript on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

Diplomas Held for Mailing Address

Effective January 2022, diplomas being held for a mailing address or those returned to the Office of the Registrar as undeliverable will only be kept for one calendar year from conferral.  After that date, you will be required to order a duplicate/reissued diploma.

If you plan to have your diploma framed, please note that framing processes that require heat can damage the diploma and should not be used.

Double majors are reminded that they receive only one degree -- and thus only one diploma.
