Happy commencement family

Commencement Overview

Commencement should be a joyous occasion for graduates, parents, family members, and friends. We want to make sure you enjoy every minute of the event without having to worry about details like parking and seating. We also want you to be well informed about what a graduate needs to do before the big day. If you have additional questions that are not answered by this website, please feel free to contact my office for more information.

Janet G. Schmitt, Interim University Registrar, Enrollment Management

Diplomas are mailed once degrees have been confirmed. 

Diplomas will be sent to the diploma mailing addresses provided from the submitted online graduation applications.

If a diploma mailing address needs to be updated after submission of the graduation application, please email with the new address from your UTK email. Updating your address through MyUTK will not update your diploma mailing address.
