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 or available for pickup approximately six weeks following the date of degree awarding. A Certified Electronic Diploma (CeDiploma) will also be emailed to graduates when the printed diploma is distributed:
|Degree Awarded||Diploma Mailed|
|December||late January - early February|
|March||late April - early May|
|June||late July - early August|
|September||early - mid October|
Students who require proof of degree completion prior to the date of degree awarding 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, email address where certificate should be sent.
