Diplomas are mailed after students have been cleared by their major department and the degree has been posted to their transcript. This generally occurs within thirty days following commencement, but may take longer in some cases. Note, diploma covers are handed out at the commencement ceremonies. Students who do not attend a ceremony will not receive a diploma cover, but can contact [email protected] to request one.

In all instances, the awarding of degrees is subject to the completion of degree requirements.

Diplomas are mailed to the address requested on the graduation application.
