Missouri State University is partnering with our vendor Parchment to provide digital and printed diplomas and certificates. A Digital Diploma/Certificate is an official signed and certified PDF of your diploma/certificate, secured with a Blue-Ribbon Security Certificate.  Undergraduate, Master, Specialist diplomas, and certificates are 8.5”x11”, and Doctoral diplomas are 11”x14”. 

Current Graduates 

You will receive one paper diploma (per degree earned) and/or certificate and access to download a digital diploma/certificate free of charge. Please note, some account holds may prevent your diploma/certificate from being issued.  

Paper diplomas/certificates are mailed beginning four to six weeks after your degree has been awarded.  The digital diploma/certificate will be sent via email from Parchment to your Missouri State student email address.  Once you receive your digital diploma/certificate, it will always be accessible through your Parchment account; you can log in and download anytime.  

Diplomas/certificates are unavailable for pickup from the Office of the Registrar or at commencement.  Diplomas/certificates are produced by an off-campus commercial printer and mailed via USPS mail to the address you choose on your Application to Graduate. Your graduation application status and diploma/certificate mailing address can be viewed in your My Missouri State.   

You can verify that your degree/certificate has been posted by viewing your unofficial transcript in your My Missouri State.  

Diplomas/certificates that are being sent to international addresses will be mailed via USPS mail services with no tracking numbers.  Please allow additional delivery time for delivery to international addresses.  

For questions or concerns regarding diploma/certificate mailing please contact Registrar@missouristate.edu
