General Information and Financial Holds
Approximately six weeks after the date of degree conferral, diplomas are mailed to graduates who have cleared all financial obligations to the university.
Graduates with financial holds have until the semester following their graduation to clear the holds. After the holds are lifted, the graduate must contact the Registrar's Office to have a diploma ordered.
- Spring/Summer graduates must have their holds cleared and communicated with the Registrar's Office by December;
- Fall/Winter graduates by May.
Beyond that point, graduates must submit a diploma application and fee.
Diploma Name and Address

Diplomas are shipped by United States Postal Service in protective tubes and there is no tracking number available. Upon receiving your diploma please open the tube carefully. Remove the shipping label to expose the seam of the tube. Twist the tube at the seam to remove the top and gently pull out your diploma. DO NOT punch in the end of the shipping tube, as this will likely damage your diploma.
