Receipt of Diploma
DIPLOMAS ARE NOT PRESENTED AT COMMENCEMENT. The student will receive a diploma cover at the ceremony. Following certification
of completion of all requirements, the diploma will be ordered and mailed to the address
specified on the Application for Degree Evaluation and Graduation. Please make sure your diploma mailing address is correct by reviewing your Graduation
Application in Banner. This is the address to which the diploma will be mailed.
Although every effort is made to ensure that addresses are correct and diplomas are mailed in a timely fashion, we cannot be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged diplomas once they are mailed. Normal processing time is six (6) to eight (8) weeks after the commencement ceremony. All financial obligations to the university must be cleared before the diploma can be mailed. If you have satisfied all obligations to the university and have not received your diploma after this time, please contact the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com
Although rare, it is possible for a department on campus to levy a charge or fine against a degree candidate after the graduation clearance has been completed. Examples of appropriate fines/charges include (but are not limited to) dorm damage charges, parking tickets, and library fines. A degree candidate who has a balance or a hold will not receive a transcript or diploma until the appropriate department removes the hold, the charge/fine is resolved, and the Office of the Registrar is notified.
Although we exert every effort to ensure that diplomas are correct, students should review the diploma carefully and advise the Office of the Registrar immediately of any discrepancies.
NOTE: Requests submitted for a name change must be completed four weeks prior to commencement. Please ensure the name on the graduation list is the name you want displayed on your diploma. There is a charge to order another diploma for errors not due to University error ($30.00 for the bachelor’s and $40.00 for the specialist and master’s degrees).
