Diplomas will be mailed to graduates approximately eight weeks after final grades have been processed by the Registrar’s office, concluding a final degree audit by the individual Colleges. The diploma will be mailed to the address specified on degree application, unless an address change has been requested before the end of the semester.

Diplomas are issued using the name listed on your official student records. If you want your name changed, you must request a name change by the Registrar’s Office with proper identification before the end of the semester.
