Diploma Distribution

All students who attend the Commencement ceremony will be given a blank diploma cover as they walk across the stage. The actual diploma (to be inserted into the diploma cover) is distributed as follows:

  • May graduates: Diplomas are distributed immediately after the ceremony to all except late applicants, and students for whom the diploma requires reprinting. Diplomas for non-attendees will be mailed (to the address the student indicated on the completed Application for Degree form) shortly after the ceremony.
  • January graduates: Diplomas will be sent (to the address the student indicated on the completed Application for Degree form) by the end of March of the graduation year.
