Degrees are officially conferred after all grades are posted. Professors have up to 30 days from the last exam date to submit grades. Once all grades have been posted, degrees will be conferred and diplomas will be available for pickup in the Office of the University Registrar. After two weeks, any diplomas that have not been picked up will be mailed. Graduates can expect to receive diplomas approximately four to six weeks after the degree is conferred. Please ensure your mailing address is correct in Banner Self-Service.
The University Registrar will place a hold on an academic record and will not release official transcripts or diplomas for students who owe tuition, library fines, traffic fines or health services fees. All debts must be cleared one week prior to graduation at the very latest. Diploma holds mean we cannot release a student's final transcript or verify certification to state bars or employers.
