What Is a Diploma?
A diploma is a document that lists:
- The college awarding the degree
- The type of degree being awarded
- The campus awarding the degree
- The date the degree was conferred
Names are printed on diplomas from the information you supply when you submit the online Application to Graduate, which is required of all students when they are registering for their final classes in their degree program. Make sure you specify exactly how you want your name to appear and include any special characters such as accent marks or tildes over a letter.
Diploma Pick-Up Dates
When available, diplomas may be picked up at the Registrar’s Office of your home campus – Hammond in Lawshe Hall, Room 130 or Westville in Schwarz Hall, Room 40. Please make sure you have cleared up any holds on your account that may prevent you from picking up your diploma.
Fall 2021 Diploma Pick-Up Dates:
Wednesday, January 19, starting at 9:00 am through Friday, February 11, 2022 ending at 4:00 pm.
