Diplomas are issued to students upon degree conferral. All financial obligations to the University must be paid in full before diplomas can be released. Please contact the Cashier/Business Office at 305-899-3585 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding an outstanding balance hold.
- The diploma will not be awarded at the time of Commencement. Students will receive their diploma approximately six to eight weeks after the degree conferral date, either through the mail or by picking it up at the Office of the Registrar.
- We mail all diplomas via the U.S. Postal Service (throughout the U.S. and internationally). If you want to track your diploma, you can use FedEx at your own expense. This is the only way to receive a tracking number. If you would like to FedEx your diploma, contact Diploma Services at email@example.com
- The diploma is awarded under the student’s name of record in the format submitted by the student on the graduation application (first name, middle initial or full middle name, and the family name). Nicknames may not be used. Students with a legal basis for a name change may submit a request for a change to their name of record; however, such requests should be submitted prior to the degree conferral date. To request a name change, please complete the “Legal Name Change” form located here.
- For all other name change requests including former or maiden names, please contact the office of the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that all name change requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Diploma notary services for apostille purposes can ONLY be provided when using your name on record.
