Diploma Information

  • Graduates who cannot attend their departmental ceremonies will have the opportunity to order a diploma cover through the Diploma Request Portal. The cover will be free of charge but the Registrar's Office will be assessing shipping fees. More information will be available on the Registrar’s Diploma website.
  • Diplomas for winter and spring graduates will be ordered within a week of Spring degree conferral and require 6 to 8 weeks for processing and shipping. Students who require their diplomas within a shortened timeline have the option to request expedited shipping. More information on expedited shipping can be found on the Obtaining Your Diploma page on the Registrar’s website.
