Diplomas

Diplomas are issued four times a year, normally 8 - 10 weeks after the term ends, and after all holds are cleared. To order your diploma, complete and print out our diploma order form (PDF). 

The size of the diploma, excluding those awarded to students in the Law and Taxation programs, is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Law and Taxation students should consult the appropriate contact listed below for diploma information.

The Office of Registrar can provide a replacement diploma for students who graduated after spring 1999. The replacement diploma bears the signatures of University officials who served at the time the student graduated. The size of the replacement diploma is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches and the cost is $50.

We also offer a display diploma that bears the signatures of the current University officials. The size of the display diploma is 11 inches by 14 inches and the cost is $50.

Diploma orders will be fulfilled within eight weeks after we receive payment, if there are no holds on the student's account.

The University will accept check or money order if you pay by mail, or cash, check or money order if you pay in person.
