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.

Diplomas

Diplomas are mailed once 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 email Jacqueline H. Jones at jjones11@utk.edu 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. Please email any address updates to Jacqueline H. Jones at jjones11@utk.edu.
