Diplomas and Graduated Status
Official Graduated Status
When all grades, exams, practicum results, and any pending administrative issues are completed, a student will be officially graduated. Any pending issues will cause delay and may even require your graduation date to be postponed.
Graduated status can take several weeks to finalize as final grades and results are submitted. For this reason, your transcript will not reflect a recently completed program immediately after your graduation day.
The University orders diplomas for all graduating students after commencement and all final grades are submitted. Students cannot order their diplomas in advance. All administrative issues must be resolved and you must be officially graduated in order for a diploma to be ordered.
Things to keep in mind:
The University does not keep a copy of your diploma on file. If you request a replacement diploma, your cost will be $35.
To request a replacement diploma, please complete the Diploma Reorder Request Form and return it to Student Services. All replacement diplomas must be requested in writing and include your legal name. If you have an outstanding balance on your account, the processing of your request may be delayed.
