Receiving Your Diploma

Students receive their diploma three to four months after the quarter in which they have graduated. The diploma is mailed to the permanent address on file with the Office of the Registrar.

Ordering Additional Diplomas

If you wish to order additional or replacement diplomas, send the Diploma Replacement Form to the Office of Graduation and Academic Records. The diploma replacement fee is $20.00. Once an order form has been submitted, it takes six to eight weeks for the diplomas to be delivered.
