Diploma Request Form

Diplomas are provided to graduates at the time of degree conferral, assuming they have cleared all financial obligations to the university. Graduates have until the semester following their graduation to have any financial holds lifted and have contacted the Registrar's Office accordingly 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.

Diplomas, measuring 16 inches by 12 inches, are available and can be ordered by mail for a cost of $25. Diplomas may only be ordered by the graduate. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. 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.
