Graduation and Diploma Mailing
Deadlines related to graduation can be found on the academic calendar.
Diplomas are mailed to the address indicated on the Application for Degree form. If the diploma mailing address changes between the time the form is submitted and degree awarding, students may update the address on the previously submitted Application for Degree in the TGS Forms tab in GSTS. Diplomas are mailed approximately four to six weeks following the date of degree awarding:
|Degree Awarded||Diploma Mailed|
|December||mid January - early February|
|March||mid April - early May|
|June||mid July - early August|
|August||mid September - early October|
Students who require proof of degree completion prior to the date of degree awarding or prior to diploma mailing may request a Certificate of Completion. Assuming all degree requirements have been met, a Certificate of Completion can be generated in 1-2 business days. To request a Certificate of Completion, students should:
- Make sure that all degree requirements have been met. Refer to the master's degree completion and PhD degree completion sections of this catalog for specific requirements.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that contains the following information: Name, student ID, address (email or US Mail) where certificate should be sent.
Following the date of degree conferral, confirmation of degree completion can be requested via an official transcript through the Office of the Registrar.
