Diploma Name – Diploma names are based on the information provided on the degree application. Name changes must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to update your degree application information. You may submit an Affidavit of Name Change prior to awarding. Any changes made after awarding will not prompt a new diploma; however, you may order one online for a fee.
Degree Information – Degree type and major(s) will be listed on diplomas. Minors and concentrations will not be included on the diploma. Double majors leading to the same degree type will be awarded as one degree/diploma. Dual degrees (any non-duplicative combination of BA/BS/etc) will be awarded as two degrees/diplomas.
Mailing – Diplomas will be ordered and mailed approximately two weeks after degree awarding and will be sent to the diploma mailing address provided on the degree application. Any address changes should be reported to email@example.com . Student’s will be charged a $30.00 reissue fee if their diploma information is incorrect at the time of degree awarding. Our vendor will send an email to you when the diploma is en route.
*Students must be in good financial standing with the university and have no financial holds on their account in order to receive their diploma. Diplomas and transcripts cannot be released until all holds are resolved, and their account balance is under $20.00
