When completing your graduation application, you are asked to provide a diploma name and a diploma address. For your diploma name, please give your legal name exactly as you want it to appear on your diploma. Most students typically determine a preference between using his/her full middle name or instead using only a middle initial. We require that the name you provide is the name that the registrar’s office has on your academic records. If we do not have your current diploma name(s) updated in our records, you will be asked to provide legal documentation of your name and we will make the necessary change(s).
It’s recommended that you list a permanent address for mailing your diploma. Please allow eight to ten weeks post graduation date to receive your diploma. Undergraduate students receive their diplomas by mail after they have completed ALL requirements under their prescribed course of study. However, delay in submitting your graduation application causes a delay in diploma ordering. Diplomas for graduate students are ordered after all requirements (including thesis) have been completed.
Students with outstanding debts to the college will not receive a diploma until all debts are resolved.
For more information, students should e-mail their graduation auditor.
