Diplomas are usually mailed approximately four (4) weeks after L&S has notified the Office of the Registrar’s Office the names of students who have completed all of their degree requirements. Diplomas will not be mailed out to students if they still have certain types of holds on their academic records. Once the holds have been cleared, students’ diplomas will then be automatically released for mailing. See diplomas for more information.
