The diploma is mailed to students approximately eight weeks after the end of the semester of graduation. A hold will prevent the release of a student’s transcript and diploma. The name used is the name provided by the student on the Intent to Graduate Form.
The diploma lists the degree earned, major(s), and the scholastic honors attained at the end of the semester of graduation. Options within majors and minors are not recorded on the diploma but are on the transcript. Students completing multiple majors in the same degree will only receive one diploma listing all majors.
