Fall Semester Final Grades Due by 8 AM on December 16
Due to the holiday season, diplomas for the December 2014 graduation class are expected to be placed in the mail the week of January 19, 2015. An e-mail notification will be sent to the graduation class once the diplomas have actually been placed in the mail on their way to the graduates.
All Diplomas are mailed once all degrees have been confirmed.
Diplomas will be sent to the diploma mailing addresses provided from the submitted online graduation applications. Please be advised that the permanent address from the university-wide address system is the default address used only when the student has chosen not to provide a diploma mailing address on the submitted online graduation application. If a diploma mailing address needs to be updated after submission of the graduation application, please e-mail Jacqueline H. Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org with the new address and include your student id number with that information. Please note also that since the university-wide address system is not related to the online graduation application, any changes you make in the university-wide system will not automatically update the information provided on your graduation application. So please e-mail Jacqueline with any address updates.
