Diplomas and Certificates

Graduate Programs is responsible for ensuring all graduate students have met the University and graduate degree and certificate requirements for graduation. Awarding of the certificate and/or degree is typically completed eight weeks after the end of the semester in which the student applied to graduate.

Once the graduate certificate and/or degree is awarded, Graduation Services will order your certificate/diploma.  The delivery takes an additional eight weeks following the awarding of the certificate/degree, and sixteen weeks in total. If your address will change after graduation, you must update your address via GWeb or by submitting a Change of Address Form.

Students who have not received their certificate and/or diploma 16 weeks after their graduation date should review their unofficial transcript on GWeb to verify that the degree was awarded.  If awarded, students must contact Graduation Services.

Students whose certificates and/or degrees were not awarded should contact their academic advisor for assistance.
