To prevent any delays in receiving your diploma, please pay your student account in full. For assistance in settling your account, contact Student Financial Services at 656-5700.

:: Receiving Your Diploma

Graduates of the College of Arts & Sciences

Immediately following the Arts & Sciences ceremony graduates can pick up their diplomas at Royall Tyler Theatre (in the event of rain, diplomas will be distributed from the University Heights South complex). Distribution of diplomas following the ceremony will be for a limited time only. Diplomas will be available for pick up at the Student Service Center (third floor Waterman) the week following commencement for graduates who are unable to collect their diplomas after the ceremony.

All Other Graduates

If you are a graduate of a school or college other than the College of Arts & Sciences you should receive your diploma at your school or college's individual reception. For graduates who are unable to collect their diplomas after the ceremony, diplomas will be available for pick up the week following commencement at the Student Service Center (third floor Waterman).

:: Honors

The recipients of honors are determined when all grades for seniors have been submitted. We anticipate making available the names of those students who have earned honors the Thursday prior to commencement.
