Frequently Asked Questions

When Will I Receive My Diploma?

The name appearing on the official diploma will be the student’s legal name listed on the official academic record. Students must verify that their legal name is correct. If the legal name needs to be updated, students can submit a Personal Information change form. Unresolved financial obligations will prevent the release of the official diploma.

Undergraduate and graduate students will receive their digital diploma 4-6 weeks after their school/college confirms the completion of degree requirements. After the digital diploma has been issued, students will receive instructions to request one copy of their print diploma at no additional cost.

Diploma frames can be ordered through the University Bookstore.
